    Carb or fuel injected?

    Ok after looking for a minute I see it is fuel injected. Could the rattling be coming from a loose o2 sensor? If its loose or completely out then that would defiantly fit your symptoms.

    Look it over for the obvious first, run a compression test and check back in

    You symptoms could be a failed lifter. Evo's front cylinder exhaust is the most prone to roller bearing failure.
