What is this tensioner rattle that you're having? I have a rattle from 3-4k most noticeable under WOT, I think it is just an exhaust hanger, or bolt, but want to see what you were talking about before I go digging under the car.

I got mine mostly at startup, I'd hit the gas and when the RPM's dropped to around 3k it would make a rattle that sounded like something was loose. It was really obvious if you did it from under the hood, if I rev'd it up a bit manually you could hear it was coming right from the timing belt area. I never heard it under WOT, and while driving around in would only happen while the car rev'd coming to a red light or stop sign.
