    Rattling under engine

    What's up everybody, I just had a question about a noise i've been hearing under my WRX for the past couple weeks. I only hear it when my foot is lightly on the gas and cruising at a consistent speed and disappears when i apply more gas or totally let off. it kind of sounds a piece of loose plastic hitting up against something but i thought it was strange that it only happens when im cruising at a constant speed. it isnt that loud, but enough to hear it over my exhaust.

    05 WRX, lightly modded, 125xxx miles

    anyone have any idea? i havent gotten a chance to go under and take a look yet. figured id ask on here first

    Over the internet all I can guess is a heat shield loose and rattling or even the drain tube for the A/C hitting the firewall. My guess is useless though.
