    Cant figure it out...

    got another problem, cant figure it out because it doesnt do it while it idles and doesnt do it while reving the engine. the last project is that i put on an edlerbrock strut tower brace. i went out the night after i installed everything was working fantastic, today i let it sit in the driveway till bout 6pm tonight and i was driving around every time i floored it i would hear this large clacking noise very noticable. also checked if i drive at high rpms to see if it will make a noise but still didnt do it. it will only to it when i get on it. Any ideas please let me know. i dont think its the engine but i dont get how it could be the install of the strut tower brace because when i drove it last night it was great.

    Could be alot of things. Did all the strut nuts get tightened back down all the way to the proper torque spec. Is the engine or something hitting the strut brace. I'd look at these things first, since it sounds like an easy fix.

    Hard to tell from your lack of description honestly. Give us some more info. Where does it sound like it's coming from? What kind of noise does it sound like? Metal rubbing against metal? Clunking? Knock? Squeal?

    Throw us a bone here

    its coming from middle part of the engine areA, sounds kinda like an exhaust leak but i dont think it can be that because when in neutral rev doesnt make noise
