    Car is messed up...Looks like a bearing issue from what I have read

    Drove the car hard today to work because I was retardedly late....

    Driving up the hill to work my car began to make this noise.

    Had it for less than 2 months, needless to say I'm thrilled, 34k miles.

    I'm under warranty, but the guy I bought it from tuned it so I need to take the tune off with my accessport and hope to god they dont see it.

    Everything sounds like rod knock on youtube. Your best course of action would be to get it checked out ASAP, if it is a rod bearing you run the risk of damage to more than just your short block.

    Bad timing belt bits, or a cracked coil pack can sound like rod knock over the intarwebz.

    yea man sorry about your luck. We have had one or two where I work with that issue. As mentioned get it checked out ASAP. As long as there are no other noticeable mods on the car they shouldnt dig in as far as the ECM programming...
