I recommend that you take a read through this link here...................... <a title="http://gtpworldforum.yuku.com/topic/442" target="_blank" href="http://gtpworldforum.yuku.com/topic/442">Official read first thread!</a> It will allow you to learn about what you are going to be doing to your car if that 3.4 pulley is not supported correctly. KR (knock retard) is a big issue with these cars and you want it to be at 0* at all times and when they are stock they will have a little but since you have added the 3.4 with nothing supporting it but the filter then you are probably getting a large amount of KR right now. Take a look at that thread and then see what the supporting mods for the 3.4 are. Mods for these cars can get pricey sometimes so welcome to the world of spending money. LOL!Image

It could be a bad coupler if it makes the noise during idle and then goes away when you raise the rpms. Does it make a rattling noise? Where are you located?
