Start though by checking the service of the car, check if it has a clean air filter, a recent (ish) fuel filter change. This would restrict the main ingredients and cause the car to stammer under pressure when it needs the power, and its fairly cheap to replace the fuel filter / much cheaper to replace the air filter!

 

Otherwise Could be engine mounts are vibrating to be honest, if its only when you floor it, the engines going to work harder.

Hi Mark,

 

Does it sound like its a metal on metl sound? I had a simillar issue with mine and what I found was that the heat shield on the turbo was hitting the steel radiator pipe and by pushing it back and putting heat resistant tape on stops the two rattling together,

Thanks for replys guys both air filter and fuel are quite new and its done it from three years of owning it, ill check the turbo heat shield next just strange rattle but it does sound like metal to metal and definitely outside the engine. Ive had the car since 76000 and now its just done 106000

I would say check heat shields too, but would check all of them as they are prone to coming loose and vibrating off each other and the car,

Will do thanks mate strange how it does it just between them revs but thats where the power starts kicking in.
