Default chirping/creaking noise

it sounds like i got a little bird in my car..

i have a 2001 rs with4400 miles with a 5 spd... i am getting an unusual chirping noise ..i hear it while idle, louder when hitting bumps, going in/out of driveways, and even shifting...i have tried to locate where it is coming from but i only hear it while im in the car cause when i go outside to locate it the noise is drowned out by the engine noise....it seems to be in the center of the car, but i dont know if its behind the dash or in the engine bay...
help..

I have the same problem too!!!! Do you guys have an aftermarket exhaust? I can't remember if my car was making the noise before I put my new exhaust on. I can definitely tell that mine is coming from the rear of the car. I even took mine to Subaru and they said they couldn't find anything wrong. I'll try to fiddle with the exhaust today.

25000 miles, same noise, Brospeed cat back.
Thought it sounded like a exhaust hanger. One of these days I'll look for it and fix it.

I am running a Borla... I'll have to fiddle around under there after the car cools down tonight and see if I can't find the noise.

well i had something like this...kinda funky but there is a wire loom holder mounted to the top of the trans and was not folded over properly at the factory so it was rubing the firewall everytime the motor shook....after it had rubbed thru the rubber coating it was scraping on the body....man how irritating that was.

You guys can try tightening the heat shields. I had a really nasty squeek every time i pulled away from a stop. Tightened the shields and elimintate the squeek.

Now if I could only figure out where this WOT exhaust sounding rattle is coming from....
