Cylinders 1,2 and 4 on my 97 get around 216 PSI and I was told by the dealer (Carter Subaru in Seattle) that, that PSI was normal and that Subarus run high like that. However my #3 was at 90 PSI. They said when #3 goes it's almost alway because of a burnt valve. Cylinder #3 has a lot connected to it and it's my understanding that it's usually the first to go if there is any cylinder trouble. I don't get the rattling you do but my 97 shakes because it's off balance and occasionally dies at stops.
