oh no!! i hope my pressure plate isnt bad!! im going to try replacing my mounts first because i ended up having to re use my old split ones.. which im sure is attributing to the shaking, if not the main cause. and as far as the whining noise it is only heard under half throttle and WOT acceleration while in gear. reving the car in neutral does not produce the sound.. which means it must be drive train or accesory belt related? the mpeg file is too large to upload so im going to try and resize it. thanks so much prospeeder!!!
