so i put a Cutout on my car, and now I hear a really weird rattle when I rev my engine. Is this a normal sound? the car only has around 60K miles on it, so it's not too worn out. You can't really hear it unless the exhaust is open. Here's a video.
should I be worried?

is it only when you rev the engine?

Is it an electric cutout? Mine does that now too, it's actually the butterfly in the cutout rattling. Mine does it at idle and certain rpm's.

ya, it's only when I rev it. It's a QTP electric cutout.... That sucks if that's what it is. I paid alot of money for it and I don't want to be embarrassed when I rev it by sounding like something's falling apart. It only happens when it's open.

yah my change in my ashtray use to rattle with my exhaust, but also i had SFC and the bolts had worked loose and it was a really loud rattle when i revved but could also be slightly heard when driving normally and thats what it was just something you might check but since it's only when the QTP's are open its prolly something with them.

Think I should call QTP and complain?

you might call QTP and see if they have any idea what could be making the sound?
