Check the catpipes heat shield, check the headers heat shield. The bolts and metal around it rusts out and they vibrate. Jack up the car, get on ur back and shake the heat shields with ur hand, they should move all over the place. Also its a dualmass flywheel clutch, they tend to be loud u will hear chatter and rattling.

U prob need a tune up too! How many miles?

Timing belt and componets replaced asap!!!! serp belt, plugs, water pump, valve cover gasket etc
