High RPM rattle

I have a 2002 WRX and when I get it up to a high RPM 5 or 6K it makes a strange rattleing sound from under the hood. Its not very loud, but it doesnt sound very healthy. I'm not sure if its something loose that is just shaking with the high RPM's or if something is wrong. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a bunch

Might be the heatshield or a loose bolt. Just make sure everything is nice and tight. And if you got an oil change recently, just check over their work.
