I get this weird rattling noise from the car when it warms up and is idling at a slope

It sounds like the resenator is hitting the heat shield

Any ideas would be good, there are just the stock exaust hangers now, i dont know if i should put kartboy ones on, everyhting else to do with the exaust is stock

Check to see if the flange between the midpipe and the muffler is really close to your rear differential.

Mine did the same thing at first. It kinda went away on its own. I think I must of had some of the hangers at some odd angle and after some crazy driving things settled to their natural position and the noise went away.

check and see if any of the heatshields are really close or touching the exhaust pipes. If it looks like the edges are too close, bend them away a little bit. I had this problem when I turned on the a/c. I would get a ringing cow bell noise. It was the heatshield.

I've just had the same rattling sound.

The EVO2 is on the car for a week and it started to rattle this week-end after some spirited laps on the Nürb ! :D

It rattles now when the car is warm.

I will check the heatshield ASAP
