Noticed tonight that when idling in neutral with the clutch out, makes a bit of mechanical noise vs. when pulling the clutch in, pretty noticeable difference. Any of you guys notice this? Guessing it is just the nature of the beast. I guess the noise I would be hearing is in the transmission. Oh well, hope it doesn't frag.

Yep. Pretty noisy engine. I was going to suggest checking your clutch hub bushing but that would make noise with the clutch in, tranny in gear.
