open the hood and try to isolate where the rattle is. Maybe something is loose. Or if there is a fancy heat shield, maybe it's hitting something when the engine moves.

Uh oh. I just got my intake today.

Will be installing it tomorrow. Hopefully no rattles. Probably just a screw loose somewhere.

It's likely a loose screw somewhere - I removed the carbon filter in the stock intake and had that "problem."
Then a few days later, I installed the BMW Performance intake, and the problem was gone...
I am pretty sure now that something was loose

Remove it and do it all over again.
