What can be causing this squeaking?

Alright folks, my 2010 LS3 M6 has developed a squeak. It seems to be coming from the tranny area or possibly a little further. It happens pretty much every time I take off in 1st gear as the clutch is engaging, sometimes downshifting into 2nd or 3rd also.

I thought it might be the exhaust so I got under there and loosened every clamp, readjusted and made sure there was approx 1/2" clearance everywhere, but it still squeaks.

I was thinking though, if it was from the exhaust rubbing up against something wouldnt it also happen when going over bumps or dips in the road as the chassis flexes?

I was worried it might be the MGW shifter but I checked all the bolts and everything is tight and I have good clearance between the tranny and the shifter, I tried maintaining pressure on the shifter while in gear to see if it was just loose or something and it still squeaks.

Im not sure if Im on the right path but if it only happens when I am taking off or down shifting as the clutch engages it has to be something in the driveline, correct?

Could still be something like exhaust rubbing. That moves more when you start moving than it does any other time. Though without someone able to see under there while it is happening it might be hard to find.
