Did you fix the problem in the end? BTW I love the rs4 3 evo, remember watching a YouTube video vs the Evo RTR

Yea I eventually found out that it was a normal rattling noise. Also my exhaust manifold was loose so I tightened it and put a new gasket in and it stopped.

me and my friend both have evo's, and his makes that sound, but mine doesn't... his exhaust header actually came loose out of nowhere, so i tightened it down... maybe its an air leak from the gasket? i'll replace his and see if its still making the sound, i have one laying around anyways.

If it sounds like little bells in your motor its the bearing went out and its bouncing inside your motor

Just a thought, but have you checked your gear mesh?

No. There's one more behind the that one. They are like one cm apart.

Do you have aluminum clutch shoes? If you do have the little bell sound could be coming from your clutch shoes. A shoe could be lightly engaging, you could have a broken/lose/weak clutch shoe spring. Check out the clutch before you'll have to take your entire engine apart to see if sound could be coming from your engine.

Here's one way to check if its your engine. Remove the glow plug, try and spin your flywheel either direction till you can see the piston and try to see for any dings/dots/crator damages over the top of the piston.

The piston has no craters or scrapes.
