Probably a loose piece. Have someone rev the engine and you look under the hood for the noise. My engine cover posts vibrate from time to time. Now that we are talking about it I've been wanting to take those off, thanks for posting!

I've had this in other cars!

The two posts are in the middle front just to the right of your TB and top left of the engine if you are facing the engine bay. This would only be true if you have your engine covers off though.

Also could be your header or down pipe rattling against the sway bar. Seen that before in the balt.

Could be your flex pipe. Mine is fine until I accelerate and then i get almost a buzzing sound that seems like its coming from behind the glove compartment. Put it on my hoist and still hear nothing unless someone presses on the fuel.
