    Smile Help my wrx rattles

    I have an 06 wrx wagon with cobb air intake spt cat-back exhaust an upgraded down-pipe, and a short throw shifter. It has 128,xxx miles on it and I am the second owner.
    whenever I put the car in neutral or even just when Im not accelerating, I hear a really loud rattle coming from the car. Maybe something is loose? I dont know. It rattles as the rpms are going down. This happened out of the blue and I am just wondering if anyone knows what the issue is......any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance for any help
    Matt

    Most likely, it's your turbo heat shield. Check to see that's bolted in in at least a couple good places (if you can bend it with your hand, it's not tight enough.
