    Subaru BRZ Engine and Technical Discussion
    Anyone experiencing a rattling noise around 2800 RPMs that sounds like knocking or detonation? It occurs under light load when I mash on the gas quickly. I had a dealership recommend switching to a top tier gas (Exxon, Shell, etc.) for a few tankfuls but haven't seen any improvement.
