I haven’t bought the car yet. I took it for a test drive earlier and happy with everything else with it. I’m just looking to know could be the turbo or something else. It only happens when you go above 3500 revs in any geae

The turbo charger is located very close to the bulkhead it could just be that you are noticing.
