Deceleration gear sound
Hey guys,

Finally got my car back after the new engine was put in. When coming down from higher revs (5500+) on compression, i can hear what sounds like the gears in the trans. Its not super loud, but definatley noticable over the engine sound, and im a bit concerned. I can try to take video.

Has anybody else experienced this? Am I maybe low on gear oil?

Thanks for your help!

happened on my 07- guy who did the work was lazy and just threw it back together. my steeda trans mount wasnt lined up or assembled right and there was metal to metal contact. worth taking some time to poke around under the hood and jack the car up for a look too
