Default I have a knock.

When i first start up my truck i hear a rattle down, if you know what i mean, it rattles high pitch then gets quieter, this is a fast thing, the high to low, but the low sound doesnt stop, i have been all through it and to be honest it sounds like its coming from the cat, i have put my ear up to it and its closer to that than anything, if i go closer to the engine it is quieter, you get what im saying, im tryin to understand exactly what this could be i dont have much experience with anything like this so any help would be good.

Can you get a sound bite of it, or a video? I know my K&N makes noise in my truck.

That actually might be in your transmission. kind of sounds like a throw out bearing.

Take a rubber mallet or a dead blow hammer and tap right around the area on the exhaust where you hear it. If the "honeycomb" is coming loose you should be able to hear it bouncing around in there.

That's the thing...I can't tell. Last time I had a throwout bearing go out...or make noise...it acted normal until detonation. I would start checking your cat first. THat's an easy one lol

X2. Sounds just like the bearing to me also.

And I don't mean to get too far off topic, but is that a Mossberg .270 you got in your photo album? If so, we have the same rifle

I've had great luck with it. Sighted it in when I first got it, and as far as I know it's still dead on (haven't shot it since last September, lol).
