What you mean "we" kemosabe ?  #|8-}

I have an automatic and see it too.  In addition to the the ~1400rpm
constraint, I've also determined that (for me at least), it happens while
decelerating between 45 and 40mph (the downshift from 5th to 4th ?), with a
light throttle or no throttle at all, on relatively flat roads.  Even given
all that, I *still can't* produce it at will.

I'm beginning to like the single vibrating exhaust system on the grassy
knoll theory.
