what i did is a few layers of 3m very high bond double sided foam tape. i can't remember the thickness of it, but generally, the thicker the better (vibration isolation)
i also didn't fasten the solenoid with bolts to the car. instead I kind of rigged it with zippties just in case the tape let go.
a lot less tickticktick at low rpm is now heard in the cabin.

HEATSHIELDS!

not 100% but when i first bought my scoob i thought i had some serious issues and was poking the block for days trying to figuere this siht out. i finally was at ease when a) like JavaBLak said: our cars make a good amount of "normal noise" and b) i found the noise coming from the tiny tiny heatshield covering the header/cat joint. i guess i had bent it on the ground somehow and was bent just enough to rattle at certain RPMs. it was aloud ticking that grew louder withing the certain RPM ranger that it was audible. (i.e: if the noise is heard between 2-4k, the noise would get louder from 2-4k then stop suddenly.

again, not 100% sure, but worth to jack up the car, and have a buddy (or reach up and around) and give the gas pedal some light taps or until u get to the "noisy" RPM range. then take a listen.

goodluck

dont rule out a missing grommet on the firewall. Look behind your gas/brake/clutch pedals. speaking from personal experience.

and only at 2k right? PITA! but ya, if it ends being a heatshield, just bent it back (obviously not too much as to snap it off) or take it off (which is not recommended but some people do it)

The thing is, I personally tightened, and re-tightened all his heat shields. But it doesn't hurt to triple-check I guess.

As for the grommet: I know his is missing. I actually told him to get one in there right away

ya usually heat shields are a metal tin-like sound which doesn't seem like it in the vid.
