    When i start my journey every morning and as soon as i take my foot of the clutch i here a fluttering sound from the engine bay.

    does anyone have any idea where exactly it's coming from and what needs to be done to sort it.

    thanks,

    does the noise still happen if you change gear off boost, (below 2500 rpm) or acelerating gently??

    Just when gently accelerating it makes the noise.

    Is it something major?

    thanks,

    to tell you the truth its hard to diagnose a problem without actually hearing it! i am guessing it could be wastegate chatter! but you have changed the DV so am stumped! without having a look at it!

    Sorry i couldnt be more help!
