Xe engine has been in almost 2k miles now and I've got a resonating noise that is driving me mad (also had a similar noise on my last 2.0 nova) its coming from the brake pedal bar / heater matrix sort of area, it sounds like the pedal bar that runs across the inside of the bulkhead is resonating or being rubbed by something,
It doesnt seem to be dependent on what gear I'm in and happens on accelerating and after lifting off, seems to almost stop if I depress the clutch,
I thought it could be the exhaust catching on the tunnel but I cant see no evidence of this, also thought about the gearlinkage maybe contacting the steering rack?
Car is running standard SFI box and this looks to be clearing the bulkhead,
Clutch cable hole is bent towards the passenger side chassis leg - could this be creating a problem?
Drivers side heater matrix pipe is cut right down but may still contact the inlet manifold when being driven, possible cause?
Does this sound like a classic nova XE conversion noise????
