    Have you checked the manifold for cracks?

    Its not missing or missfiring is it?
    Its a jam thing

    no miss fire but does make a weird noise when pulling away in first gear hard to explain noise got told the noise may be from the clutch but the noise is comming more from the manifold area or downpipe only happens when in low revs pulling away
