Default Got a new CAI installed

Hey all:

My car has about 83k miles and I just decided to get a Injen Cold Air Intake installed.
Brought it to a shop and they installed it in 3 hours.

I noticed when stepping on the gas u hear the air being sucked in and the car has more power and better throttle response which I really like.

But.... now i hear something else.

When I push the car hard "giving it alot of gas then switching gears" - When I give it alot of gas then Push in the clutch I hear a quick "rattle" sound. I only hear this when I push the car, when I drive slower and push the clutch in I do not hear the rattle.

Also, say if im in 4th gear doing 40mph without touching the clutch and i press down hard on the gas then let off the pedal quick I get the quick "Rattle" sound again.

This "rattle" sound was NOT around before the CAI install.

Any ideas what the rattle might be? I check the CAI its installed tight. Nothing loose.
