    Alright, i have read that quiet a few other of you guys have had random noises underneath your tacos too. i have had a loud rattle unpon acceleration for a while and when i get up to a steady rpm it lightens. When i push in clutch the rattling stops and sometimes i will hear a screeching metallic noise like a heat shield or something. I just replaced both cats hoping that it would fix the prob. but unfortunately i was wrong! I still think it is within the exhaust somewhere.....
    If anyone has similar prob or solution i would love to hear feedback bc this noise is driving me insane!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If it is clutch oriented, it sounds like the throw-out bearing

    dont think its clutch oriented, it makes the noise in neutral, with or without clutch engaged

    Throw out bearing is still "turning" under those conditions

    ^^^this. When clutching, you're taking load off of driveshaft. They are easy to inspect and rule out.
