I'll bet your downpipe is hitting on the firewall somewhere or the pipe is laying on the transmission crossmember.......I've been trying to adjust mine due to the same issue, and think I got it tonight.

Not 100% sure, but you may wanna look at the bolt head at the crossmember where the downpipe connects to the next piece. Thats usually a REALLY tight spot and it can vibrate like heck if its on that bolt head.

That is usually the big mystery. Easy to fix, but hard to notice if you havent done it before.

I had a horrible vibration when I punched my 04 after installing my Magnaflow. It turned out I didn't have the downpipe flush against the turbo flange. I took the clamp off completely and wedged the pipe snuggly against the flange and re-installed the clamp. No more vibration. If it isn't tight it will hit the firewall.

Send a message via AIM to onebigbad6.0
If you go to Hog Performance exhaust's website that have a video on exactly where to bend the firewall and stop the vibration. I too have the mbrp 4" system and mine did the same thing. Theres not enough room for the exhaust to work freely without hitting that firewall. I just used a hammer and a brick and tapped it out about 1/4" and it hasnt vibrated since.
