Vibrating Noise

I sure others have the same issue I just want to know what they did to fix it if they did. The prob is I belive the heat shield, their is a vibrating noise if I'm cruising lets say abt 60 for example and I give it more gas is when u hear the vibration like I said I think it might be the heat shield but idk I tried to record the noise while driving but u can't hear it in the video just the wind

I know from my experience with Hondas usually the heat shield would make a noise at idle or low rpms. Wouldn't hurt to take it off and see. When I had a noise in my engine bay I just cracked the hood and listened closely all around until I pin pointed where it was coming from. But that might not help if you only get the noise at higher speeds.

Does your intake sit high enough to touch the good at a higher rpm while the motor has rocked
