    Good afternoon, My name is Mike and i have a question for you. I just wanted to know if your Liner makes a rattle type noise while acellerating from a stop and after shifting and rolling back on the throttle until 2500 rpm is reached. Is sounds like a top end noise, not a tap, a knocking noise. worse with someone on the back. it is only when the motor is under load, sounds like two blocks of wood clapping together. Def not a ping, a rattle. It goes away after the rpms pick up and overcome the load. i heard some say this is normal and this engine has a lot of top end noise ? Does your Strat do the same thing ??
