    Ok, ive been hearing that this is a honda thing, but I seem to have a rather annoying rattle/buzz under my teg at around 3500 rpms. Ive heard its the heatshield over the bottom of the cat. Any suggestions on getting rid of this noise?

    or fasten it back down

    most likely the heat shield. It could also be the gasket in between your header and cat/test pipe.
