Default what would be rattling/clunking/vibrating...

in the passenger side floorwell...

only under heavy acceleration, right before the shift, as soon as it shifts, it goes away... so that pretty much rules out the drivetrain...

and the tranny is on the other side.....

WTF?

sounds like something is binding, rubbing, grinding, rattling, clunking, and you can feel it in your feet on the floorboards...

i check for an exhaust leak... saw nothing at all RPM'*

fuel fitler is below rear seat

as per bill... i already check the cv joints... no clicking of any kinds..

if i powerbrake it, i can kinda hear it in the passenger footwell...

i cant hear anything when i pop the hood and rev it cuz the intake is to loud!!!

if it is an exhaust leak, it shouldnt be able to be felt in the floor should it?

Think about the last few things you did and how many tools were missing out of the toolbox when you were done. That'll probably make sense as to the sound you hear.
