Unhappy turboxs top mount intercooler

I just got the stage three for my wrx and now when the hood is closed I get a rattling or a sqeaking noise at idle. I can't see where the intercooler is rubbing but it doesn't make the noise when the hood is up and it didn't make it befor the intercooler install. Any one know whats going on?

Did you take off all the rubber stuff from the stock i/c along with the metal trim that holds it to the hood?

I found the freakin thing. If anyone else installs a topmount that is really big then please remember to take all of the screws from the rubber stuff from the top of the hood, out of the original holes. If they are left in they will rub on the top of your intercooler, albeit a small amount they create an annoying rattle.
