My friend with her 2001 Acura GSR has been having some weird metallic vibration/rattle.

If she stays in gear past 3k RPM or so, this rattle occurs. It's some sort of metallic vibration of some sort.

My guess is a loose metal shielding of some sort that gets rubbed just the right way when she hits a certain RPM.

But I don't have much experience with manual tranny's. Can you guys think of anything?

its the lawnmower shield

definitely cut off all of the shields on the lawn mowers exhaust and see if the noise ends

is the car owned by that cute asian girl that i see when i come up to mass every summer?

this girl's pretty cute...but semi-annoying.
