I need help...service engine soon light

I've been getting a bad rattle at startup lately. I'm not sure if it's wastegate.

Anyway, I just took my JB4 and intake out to sell. Seems like too much of a coincidence. I don't have any other problems...everything seems normal.

If the car is running normal...it couldn't be the ECU, could it?

Do I need to make sure there are no codes? I would think not if it happened AFTER I took the Jb4 out?

If it's wastegates you can test it by doing this:

Drive down your neighborhood street in a low gear. Let off the gas and watch the revs fall. If it makes a rattling noise, it's the wastegates.

Car still shakes when you put the JB4 back on?

No recent work done. I took the JB4 out. I'm selling the car.
