I've had my car for about a week.. and put 250 miles on it
(just love to drive this thing!) anyway.. i've noticed that the engine is one of the smoothest engines i've ever driven.. anyone agree with this? other thoughts?

it is a great engine. the whole set up of the car is great though. there is no back pressure even when the car is stock. i love it!

Ok well at least it's not my engine. It doesn't feel like it's a piece of crap, it's just that if I have the clutch in and I rev, at about 4k and higher there is some vibration that resonates into car.
Exactly. It doesnt' feel like the engine is going to fly out of the car or anything, but there's no doubt there's a difference between 3,500RPM and 4,500RPM.

could it be where the vvt-i is adjusting for more power?? otherwise is it a loose exhaust pipe? just throwing stuff out there.. i haven't had it 4k rpms yet.. still breaking my tC in..

There are some RPM points in an engine where the harmonic balance will be off by a little. I do see what you are saying though, because mine does it at 600rpm.....kinda shakes the car a little! Unless its a severe high-speed vibration, i wouldnt worry to much about it....- t
