Question 2005 599 weird engine sound!

Hi everyone, I was in a crash and I've finished rebuilding the whole front end. And now the engine is making weird noises, it runs great, idles well and starts fine. But the sound is off, and when I rev it a bit the revsfall slower than normal I think. I have checked for air leaks everything seems fine. Any advice?

Agreed, definitely sounds like one cylinder isn't firing. Feel for heat by holding your hand close to the header pipes while running, or wait a bit after you shut it off to touch them directly and see if one is colder. Don't burn your fingers doing this like I did once.

You could also try just spraying a little water on there to take your fingers out of the equation.
