OK so I used a wedge of wood for troubleshooting the case of the rattle and I think I found it! The cardboard didn't exactly work but here is a pic of where i put the wedge. now i just need to come up with a more permanent solution.

ok well that picture came out tiny, but you can see the wedge right above the tube and below the hood piston.

the pics kinda hard to see, but did you put the wood between the fender and the heat shield and did it totally stop the noise? Also, has anyone heard of this egr resonance thing? I saw this on the other forums and it sounds fishy to me. How can something resonate out when air is going in? I'm having trouble tolerating the noise i get between switching in and out of mds anyway so I'm thinking of modifying the spectre intake to work with the "hemi hat" (plastic plenum that used to be connected to the throttle body). I'm thinking this will help center out the tube and take the noise away from the mds and IF the egr is making the noise.

i cant hear my truck making the noise your talking about with the MDS. and sorry about that picture i tried multiple times to add a bigger picture but it wont load for me. yes i did put the wood between the heat shield and the fender, the noise is pretty much gone. every once in awhile i will hear a rattle but that might go away with a permanent solution.

I'm actually gonna send spectre an email and see what I can hash out, they've been pretty helpful before so idk. I'll let you know what comes of it.
