Hi mate, i have exactly same problem, only mine's a TS, i took the bracket off, and was in two pieces, a nice crack along where the bolt is spot welded to the bracket...
mine was making the same pinking sound after i took this off, this was also after i replaced the downpipe, took the entire exhaust system off, excluding manifold, but noise is still there, been meaning to get round to replacing the manifold, but i got the bracket welded, i suspect the pinking noise is where i took the broken bracket off and this put stress on the manifold, might be a crack or something, but in my other post i posted a video on YouTube of my engine idling and some people suggest my crankshaft/big end bearings are shot.
