Probably stressed or broke something. Good luck. Perhaps the public road(s) not the place to settle your egotistical urges.

My guess would be to first check your pulleys..

And what did the WRX do to piss you off so much? If it had a decent driver you would've been handed your arse on a platter..

Are you just being paranoid? Are you sure it didn't sound like that before!
I doubt you broke anything cars are meant to be driven hard its not like you were limiter bashing

How bad is the knock? Where is it coming from?

Does it get better when the car warms up?

Yeah goes away when warmed up. It seems like it is from lower drivers side.

He's already taken the serpentine belt off and run it to eliminate that as a problem.

A sound clip would help, but it's not really something that can be accuratly diagnosed over the internet.

Standard 6.0 knock/rattle problems that have been talked about forever on here, and other places. Is it an AFM engine?
