A growl, or rattling noise with the clutch out, idling in neutral that goes away when you pull in your clutch is normal. What's happening is the engine is speeding up each time it fires, and then slowing down each time it hits a compression stroke. This acceleration/deceleration cycle is transmitted to the transmission via the clutch, and what you hear is the transmission gears banging back and forth against themselves. You'll hear this in same thing in a lot of 4 and 6 cylinder stick shift cars. Nothing to worry about. :cry:
