When you run the car up to about 2000 RPMs sounds like really fine metal spinning around in the exhaust

Honestly it may just be the sound of the x-pipe. They can make some weird sounds at some RPMS or it could possibly be a bad spot in the weld. Does it sound like an exhaust leak?

Yeah I don't know man. Definitely shouldn't be any metal in the exhaust but if it is actually metal then it'll most likely get blown out
