Default chatter during hard acceleration

If I don't get on the gas there is no noise. But if I accelerate hard whether its from a stop or going down the road there is almost like a chatter. I have a few ideas on what it could be but I wanted to see what other people might think about it.

Do you have a manual shift? Or run over 89 octane gas?

Take your gareden hose with low pressure and disconnect heater hoses and back flush it there might be something in the core blocking flow a bit. But it is too common for them to gurgle.
