Im guessing Timing is the culprit of why my exhaust rattles sometimes when i really try an rip into the high rpms...maybe it has to do with my project isnt finished i just put a cobra intake an a e303 in an i got some aluminum gt40s but i didnt put the heads on yet so i've had to advance my timing in order to get any throttle response..could that be why it rattles at high rpms?

The higher speeds of the exhaust gases could just be enough for something to rattle...But yeah if you're having problems with throttle response to the point you have to advance the timing hardcore, your setup needs refinement. Install your heads, CAI possibly. Bigger throttle body may be in order as well.
In such a world as this does one dare to think for himself?
