I have 105K miles on my car and it has:
chip
3" TB exhaust
and lowered with coilovers.
I recently went back from Polyerthene mounts to stock type because due to a vibration i was getting under WOT. But even with stock mounts I get the same vibration.
I have an engine code for a boost leak (boos control range not reached code) and slow resonse O2 sensor.
I am wondering what could be causing this vibration?

Re: Vibration under WOT (sle39lvr)

mine does this on a WOT pull, come to actually find out its the clutch slipping on the flywheel creating a small harmonic vibrations. In 4th she will slip and jump rpms

make sure your 3" exhaust isn't hitting anything under a load?
I.E. the downpipe. also the rear axle is a tight spot. just a suggestion. is this vibration audible? or you can only feel it?

Ya you can only feel it..
It feels like it's scrictly coming from the engine or the transmission.

Re: Vibration under WOT (axlekiller)
