Default 996 Porsche Turbo

Hi,

Even in very cared for and low milage 996 Porsche Turbo's they seemto sound very rattley in engine.
Why is this and can it be rectified?

Regards.

This is a not infrequent question. Suggest going back down the 911 Forum entries for causes. Intermediate shaft torsional fluctuation rattle has appeared a few times. However this is not an issue for concern other than if you cant stand the noise.

Thanks Big Bob,
It is only really audible up to 1500 RPM
I just don't trust the sound.
I feel that the engine will fly apart when I rev it out.
It seems normal with thatTurbo engine.
Anyway, thanks again
