aup guys,

when i`ve been driving for a bit then let my foot off, let it dye to about 2000 revs then just prod the accelerator then the car lets out an almighty backfire (sounds kewl). is this just the excess fuel being burnt in the downpipe (not running a cat or centre box?).

i notice burbling now when letting off the revs but i`m just wondering if this bang could be something more serious?

(my mods are as below)

Graygti, when does yours do it? when you just prod the accelerator??
