Rattle from exhaust

Hey guys, ive noticed that when I give my car gas while in a higher gear (and now sometimes when i start it) it resonates a vibrating sound. I can make it sometimes when im going 40 and in 5th gear and load my foot onto the throttle and then off in about a second. What do you guys think? I am getting my rear resonators deleted next week and idk if that will change the problem at all or maybe if its something else it will amplify it. Let me know what you guys think.
Thanks

Read the 4th sticky from the top on this. Muffler baffles can break loose, can get fixed under warranty.

Okay, here's my 2 cents after driving a manual for 20 plus years. This is getting pretty damn humorous.

Dude, you were doing 40 in 5th gear! Shift the damn car.

I keep hearing people on these forums talk about being below 2000 rpm. Are you freakin kidding me?

That rattle everyone is hearing, is the car telling you, you are in the wrong gear. Try this, do 40 in 2nd and 40 in 3rd. Does it make the same sound? Do you realize how archaic a piece of gear a muffler is? It doesn't break, unless punctured or hit by road debris.

If this car gets below 2000-1800 rpm, shift to a lower gear! The only time you should see rpm that low is in 6th gear cruising. This car is a pig. Keep your rpm above 2000 and the responsiveness will improve. That rattle is the car trying to build up rpm for the appropriate gear.

? I think you misunderstand lol. First of all, calm down a little bit. I know how it feels to think your smarter than someone else. When I am CRUSING in 5th gear and give it a small amount of gas as an example (like being under load while going up a hill) for a second. I dont accelerate in 5th gear. I know how to drive a manual transmission. The last 4 cars I have owned have been 6-speeds and I have taken driving schools with manual cars.
Thank you for your input but I believe the post before you was the responce I was looking for.

Thanks you. Should I even bother since I am getting the rear resos deleted on Tuesday?

If you're keeping the stock mufflers I would get the warranty work done first. If you're going to replace the mufflers you could probably save the hassle, unless you are going to store the stockers somewhere.
