When i first got my dart home it was very quiet, now it seems like the engine is a little noisy on the top end. Im hoping that i didnt drive it too hard during the break-in period. I drove moderately, but i would give it full throttle here and there. Anyone else notice the engine noise?

I've noticed it as well. Sounds like valves clicking away? The engines are broken in already when they are assembled, so I doubt you over did it. I asked a friend of mine who's been working on turbo race cars for about 15 years and he says that it's actually exhaust gases passing through the turbo. He said as you rev the car the sound should get quieter or go away all together which on my car it does.
