Manual trans, Shifter shakes and rattles

I was driving to work this morming and I noticed that my shifter was rattling and making noise, first I thought it was the ball ( maybe it was loose ) but when I got to my work I noticed that was not the problem, so I went for a test drive ( I got to work early anyway ) well the noise is still there! what could it be,exhaust transfering vibration to the tranny ? and or ( thunderbolt dual exhaust mod) vibration to the shifter ( fx4 shifter mod )

My stock shifter does that only in 3rd gear. Been doing that since day 1. Just a rattle.
