Think you're hearing things. There's a slight sound of air, which I would assume is the screamer pipe. Don't hear anything odd though.

i can't here anything abnormal there

but i will say after fitting my japspeed all in one elbow and down pipe i could here a sucking sound long before the turbo spools up and thought i had a leak some where so checked all the bolts were tight which they were, i think it may just be the grade of stainless steel the use which might be ressonating the sound, you too may be experencing this:confused:

just had another listen with the speakers right by my ear (sounds nice by the way what exhaust you got?)

and i would say it is the same as what i can hear with mine, it's just the stainless screamer pipe resonating the sound from the turbo.

give it a few weeks and i bet the sound will change as the 5hit builds up on the inside of the elbow.

Lol... Thanks, The exhaust is power extreme II, trust downpipe, rsp decat, japspeed screamer and my uprated tub :)

But if it was resonating why would it make a rattle???? :dunno: :confused:

Lol, i know what your saying buddy.. But i know all the other noises.. injectors, thats it, Lol.. Im sure its just me but id thought id check... Especially because ive just put the tub and screamer on and its appeared.... Can only be cautious.. Im only wary because the Mrs bought a GTO Twin Turbo with loads of noises and those noises turned out to be probs, (ended up with the bottom end gone and turbos dead :slap:) same with the skyline...Bought it with snapped studs and didnt know.. Though i was worried bout the noise.. :D

the rattle may just be the resonating of the exhaust as when i decatted my rover it rattles it nuts out between 3-5000 rpm all because thecats missing even though its a straight piece off pipe.
