From your description, it sounds to me like the valve train. I once owned a Mazda that made a sound like you're describing after revving.Originally posted by PMD911:
When the RPM falls back down to around 2500 after revving it up, the engine makes a metallic noise like something's dragging. Anyone know what the problem could be??? Thanks.

Enough already with people ragging on FWD. Seriously, can you REALLY feel the difference in normal driving? Have you really taken a RWD car vs. a FWD car out on the track? You jump in and push a FWD car much harder without fear of "lossing it" than a RWD car from the start. Especially in the rain. (look at the type-r's kicking butt) The RWD car will be faster...buts that's ONLY if you've mastered the limit of adhesion for traction. IE you can drive at the limit and not spin out like a damn fool.
(i have a RWD RX7...i'm not just spouting off)
