Sounds like the front pipe is knocking against something. Check where the pipe goes under the car as it passes body work, g/box etc and see if it is too close.

Did they struggle to remove the old box? Its possible they have moved the whole system and now its hitting somewhere, most likely by the spare wheel bulge under the rear.

not sure ? I hope that is the problem.Iv just got this feeling it might be the drive shaft.Im not that mechanically minded but I think I remember somebody telling me that they are prone to D/S coz they are heavy up front?I have no ramps or acess to a ramp so it looks like a high kerb.Fingers crossed your right.
