engine noise

Hello, I am a new owner of a 2005 LT, with only 3500 miles...I hear a noise at about 3000 rpm. Thought it was engine knock at first...almost sounds like a tamborine sound coming from the engine. 3 different techs said that this is a normal sound for an LT...something about intermediate gears...sound makes me crazy...any ideas?

Re: engine noise

Could be the alternator with no load the gears make some noise. Mine is always either going past 3k one way or the other, keep the rpm up and have more fun with less noise!
