Default Stock LGT rattling sound and sputter from 1-2k rpm

Just purchased an 05 LGT 5MT with 65k miles.

History of vehicle:

I know the owner personally he is not a car guy barley every drove the car and never been modded. The last 2 years my friend drove the car around 6-10 miles a week if that. Car has never had any issues or problems while he owned it.

I took over ownership last week put about 150 miles on it. She drove nice and strong no issues at all then about 10 miles later I started to feel a sputter from 1-2k rpm then goes away about 3k rpm and there is what sounds like a rattling sound coming from the exhaust area possibly turbo location. When in neutral and revving not noticeable only when driving. I just did plugs all around today thinking that fix the sputtering issue was but its still there. I am not throwing any codes so theres is no cel. Car idles perfectly also.

I am noob to the turbo world and have no experience with fi vehicles. I am thinking that turbo might be on its way out or there is a boost leak.

I appreciate any help in trying to diagnose this issue and get her running back to normal again. Thank you!
