Ok listen to this...
I'm pretty sure this is exhaust related. If I turn left and I am NOT in
gear- no noise. Upon inspection, my stromung downpipe is VERY close to the
heat shield on the passenger side of the engine bay- the one that attaches
to the heat shield on the airbox. Strange. SOOOO- Do I have a bad motor
mount? Doesn't look like it but I'll check it out. Could my Stromumg have
shifted THAT much????? WTF? I need a Benz :P
