The noise does not happen on other gears just at this 2000rpm gear.. I can keep the noise if I feather the gas to keep the rpms there. Is this a problem to worry about? I saw on other sites they described this as and exhaust cackle and a computer code may or may not fix this after imputted by a mechanic??
i have the same noise at the same rpm.
mine sounds like it comes from one of the exhaust heatsheilds . i dont think its anything to worry about . i just make it get out of the gear it happens in real fast . the v10 uses alot of shields on the exhaust so witch one it is i have no way of telling
