Hey guys, quick question. I removed my intake silencer and put in a different air filter but anyways.. I tested it out while in park when i gas it, it will be fine but once i let off the accelerator ill hear a couple pops not like a back fire not nearly as loud. but any ideas what it would be? I have been driving it around today it seems fine just curious

Many people have done this modification, including me, and had no issues with it. I'd hate to say what I think may have happened....

I may be wrong but there may have been something in the air-filter or intake tube that could of broke loose, be it a plastic tab or something stuck on the filter and it could of got sucked into the engine.

Lets hope it was something else though.

If it keeps doing it let us know!

That "popping" noise you are hearing is the IAC actuating and sticking, clean it out and it should get quieter.
