interesting thread... I have noticed many many postings regerding mystery noises. As an Audio Engineer, I can promise that the audio on you tube in most cases is not really a good way to Guess judge what is really going on.

One of the least mentioned components in this forum is the exhaust syst. I'll bet more than one CXer is having issues due to a partially obstructed or leaky Exhaust. I pulled an Ex syst from a 78d last week. Maybe a pound or more of rust chips came out of the "power chamber" ( h box)

My left side heat shield is rotting away and at certain speeds began to sound like something way more serious like the fan grenading or the cam chain slapping around.

The noise maker was temporarliy fixed with a foot of bailing wire... a ten second two cent job.

I wonder why Honda calls it a "power chamber"

Edit: one day I'll take the time to spel chek my posts... "regerding"
