Default akward humming/vibrations transmission

i am finally driving my car again after finishing my turbo install. i replaced the clutch and kept the stock flywheel. i went wot in second gear for the first time the other day then i started feeling a slight vibration when car is decel using the tranny. is this normal?

i drove on the highway and at about 60 or so i feel the vibe if i let off the gas and "decelerate" with the car in gear. i am using a stage 3 f1 racing clutch lol but i want to know if it common for increased vibration or noise after installing a stiffer clutch.

i let off the gas and my dash hums a bit on the drivers side. i plan on checking all my bolts again to make sure all is still torqued. when i re installed all my bolts i double checked the tq religiously so i am not sure. i dont feel vibrations if i just rev the car in neutral.

When you first posted this I was going to tell you to check for clearance around the dp, seeing that's where ALL my vibrating/rattles have come from over the years.

Glad to see you got it figured out cause that **** can totally ruin the fun.
