      Nevermind thought it was engine related.

      It could be that if your talking about the engine making a noise. Even if one top nut was a little loose the other two should keep it in place though.

      I have the waste gate rattle too but doesn't really bother me. This definatly isn't the waste gate, much louder.

      Most noises do cancel themselves out after a week or two. My front bags popped when I would turn and no longer do that.

      This is almost every turn, and almost every low speed accel. Also only does it at a low rpm.

      It doesn't sound like anything related to the suspension. Sounds like something to do with the downpipe/exhaust when it is under WOT.

      I went WOT and no rattle. Seems like its coming from drivers side front, which happened to be where I thought I felt like a nut was loose.

      Even at low RPM's like 2500-3500? Did you re-tighten the top nuts and then take it out?
