Rattling where? There are a couple places with about 3/16in clearance.

The long pipe, which is connected to front turbo rattles against subframe somewhere here, there is a shiny mark on dp and the clearance is probably twice less

What do you mean? By the way, they should be first tightened to turbos, than to mid pipes?

There is no flex joiners option available for xi. Mine rattles only from 5000 rpm, I feel vibration on the floor with my feet. Damn, these pipes made me lots of headache...
