I feel I pinpointed the cause of a rattling sound with a loose heat shield, however I'm still a bit confused. Every time I rev the car, I hear the noise, which made me believe its the shield. However, After a cold start, the rattling noise is there during idle, but after driving for a bit, it disappears during idle.

It still could be a loose heat shield. Metal does expand when exposed to high heat like the exhaust and will probably tighten the area that's loose.
