Default Noise!! please help!! lol

When i drive my car and get into boost at a higher rpm, it makes a loud rattling type noise, it doesnt do it when i rev the engine or low rpm, it gets louder as the rpms get higher! Any suggestions please help?

Does it make the noise OUT of boost at high RPMs? Example: Get up to highway speed, and clutch in-- rev up to downshift to a lower gear, thus bringing your RPMs up. (Use your brain though-- don't go 90mph and downshift to 4th.. be smart about it.) If it does it out of boost-- it rules out a turbo issue, and you can post in the regular forums as it's most likely a drivetrain/suspension/tire issue.

Good question; hopefully you're only using premium if you're a GT...

Good answers (both). He's probably not. Either that or the timing belt has slipped.
