thump noise
Whenever I shift hard(meaning at high rpms) into 2nd to 3rd there is a loud thud coming from, i think, the rear left of my vehicle. Whats could it be? I dont drive too aggressive and I broke the car in for 600 miles before I floored it. Please advise me.

It sounds like your

A. Backfiring
B. Trying to Rip your Clutch/Gears out
C. Knocking the Engine

In that order from the sound you have told me. If you could further explain I can try to help more

the thunk is likely the rear differential...

letting you know that you are slowly killing it :)

quick or hard shifts do damage....
seriously... try to shift gingerly and gently... rev match - your tranny/diffs will thank you in the long run and your car will last much longer...

Stock you can hear the rear diff? I didn't hear it till I upgraded stuff =P

Thanks for the help Gal

Sure thing! I just put on a VF22 and I'm loving it, so I have a nice Garrett for sale! (less for BRSC members) I might be able to make it next weekend.


The 2 most repeated things I have to say are now in my sig to save typing an extra 5,000 characters a day:

*** DO NOT upgrade your intake until you upgrade your injectors ***
*** DO NOT raise boost until that ugly cat in your uppipe is gone ***
