horrible rattle sound from behind the dash

I have feltaround all over the dash for something lose but cant find anything that makes it stop. sometimes it rattles, sometimes it doesnt but it sounds like it close to the fire wall. has anyone dealt with anything like this?

I was going to say check and make sure your downpipe isn't rubbing, but I would have to say check out anything that you may have disturbed when you installed the edge insight.
