Can't tell from the video, but I will agree with the others about the heatshield problems. I was hearing all kinds of terrible squeaking/vibration noises coming from my car that made me a little worried. Upon investigation, the cat and header heatshields were both cracked around the bolts and vibrating. I took off the bottom cat heatshield and put washers behind the bolts on the top cat and a couple spots on the header headshields to snug everything up. Noises are now gone.
