That it gets louder coincident with up-shifts, I'm edu-guessing you broke something in your transmission. I would drain the transmission oil and check the magnet on the drain plug for hunks of formerly-working parts.

It sounds to me like it's going to be an expensive lesson in not thrashing your primary car.

It does sound like you have chipped a tooth in the Transmission. If that is true get a bore scope and you might be able to see what has happened inside. Fill out your profile so we know where you live ect. All it takes is one bad shift to do some damage.

If thats all you did it was broke to start with:shock: but now it's telling youit's broke.does it do it with the clutch pedel on the floor and the car stoped in gear? that would tell you it's the engine,broke valve spring/rocker,bent valve,belt coming apart etc.if not then it's from the trans to the tires. and floging your ride wont hurt it if it's built good.if it's junk it will break. my old street car with a v8 13.8 to1 cr .640 lift roller cam ran 8000+ rpm many times a day every day with only ex valves, bearing& ring change(& gaskets)every 7 years. the only thing that suffers is tires,gas,tickets,wife. if you miss a shift or over rev or abuse it ,then thats another thing all togeather.
