I have a TME exhaust and am getting a popping sound from under the car after I shut it off. I think its coming from the exhaust as it is an oil can metallic popping sound. Is anyone else experiencing this? I didn't have it w/the stock system...it may not even be an exhaust issue.

Re: Popping sound from under car after shut off (Stratton)

Just curious, does it sound like the metal is simply contracting (the exhaust gets real hot - and if its new, it could all be 'settling' into place) or is it something louder?<p>-Eric

Re: Popping sound from under car after shut off (Stratton)

I think you both hit it on the head....it is a new exhaust and it does sound like metal expanding and contracting. I just never heard it on my OEM exhaust so I decided to ask the experts. On a side note I love the exhaust and am more than satisfied w/its sound and performance.<br>

Completely normal for a new aftermarket exhaust. Now if you can get that thing to POP between gears at high revs and throw some fire out the tail pipes you will really love it. I DO! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0">
