Default Y Pipe Rattle Fix?

Hey everyone I installed PPE headers the other day and Iím over all happy with them but driving around between 3k rpm or higher and especially when engine braking my Tomei titanium y pipe has a very prevalent rattle where the arms that converge into the pipe held by the clamps. Any suggestions other than tightening the clamps?

And I guess you also got the Tomei single exhaust? I would say try add more mounts on the pipes and make them more tight?

Could be VQ engine hiss.

Check it out on youtube, sounds like rattling.
