Morris Code from under the hood

Knock, Knock, Who'sThere?
I think the SVTF is tring to send me a signal, I just don't know the code.
She is an 04 SVTF, When accelerated with gusto or decelerated quickly, I am getting a knock or a solid tap from somewhere under the hood. It cannot only be heard but felt as well. Is this from driveline twist? Will getting around to installation of the rear trannie mount be the answer? Guess I've be procrastinating on the install (there ain't a lot of room under the car, and I am a big old boy).
I have read in the past about the Steeda Short intake making a noise, but for the life of me I can't find where it may be hitting?
Again, this seems to be during times when there would be some flex in the drivetrain or mounts.
Thanks

Pop your hood and have a friend try to locate the knock while you rev your engine. Try to pin point where it is located.

Strange thing, it won't do it setting at an idle. It is like it needs to be under a TQ situation.

My Steeda intake knocked on the metal piece near the battery. I found a 1" piece of foam I jammed in there and it took care of the knocking - which happened in reverse if I let the clutch out really fast.

Other than that I wouldn't know what it is.

OK, I found out where it was/is hitting. The Steeda filter is hitting the cross metal brace that runs close to the battery box. I took a piece of garden hose, split it length wise and slipped it over the brace. No more knock, knock. However, I will still be installing the MAC lower mount as I still think the problem is the allowed flex allowed by the factory system.
