Did you leave any tools in there? grin I know it sounds stupid but it actually happened to me once... after I installed my Injen CAI I left a pair of pliers in there! Everytime I revved above 3K it would start rattling, thought it was the Intake at first until I popped the Hood. Felt kinda dumb but it's a stupid and common mistake! thumbsup
