Alright, today I popped my hood, because I wanted to look at something.
This is while the engine is running, I hear this clunking noise, and like a popping noise.. and I start to wonder where its coming from...
I put my ear next to my intake filter... It's coming from there... Is this normal? The car drives fine, but would this be a noise of a broken fin maybe from the turbo? Or this is normal engine noise? Has anyone put their ear next to their intake filter and heard this? lol

since we can't hear it over the internet yet, it's going to be hard to hear it from your text.
Can you get a sound clip and post it?

the exhaust makes that noise while warming up and cooling down. metal-on-metal expanding/contracting.
i'll bet that's what you heard...well, not really bet for realz 'cause i'm broke.

Could be the fuel line hitting the heatshield.
The dealership has a spacer that fixes the issue.
If it was something with the turbo I don't think the car would running fine.

Might just be the normal injector operation noise you are hearing.

Re: (iThread)

I'm hearing it through the intake... I put my ear through the intake and im hearing this.
I only started hearing this, after I plugged my PCV on the manifold side.
My digital cam is broken im using my friends tonight. To get some clips.
