I'll help you with the car, but please read your post back to yourself and see if you can figure out what it says

One quick thing to check is that a spark plug wire hasn't come loose, since you had handled them to add the powerfoam.

Does the noise increase with speed OR with rpm? If it's rpm, then the problem is in the engine. If it increases with speed, the problem is with the wheels/suspension/brakes/transmission etc. so not related to what you had done. In general, you need to identify what part is knocking.

I don't think English is OP's native language.
