Put some foams in between and eliminated the rattle. There is another somewhere but i think it is the heat shroud under the catalytic converter. Gonna add some sound damning material to that soon.
Mine isn't a rattle at all but rather a low frequency vibration through the pedals at around 1900 engine rpm. Just dropped it off at the dealer and the advisor said something about engine mount equalization. I'll post what they say at the end of the day.
