    Question about putting noise in second

    Ok so when I shift in to second and nail it I get a popping noise from the motor. I believe it to be the ignition but I am not sure. I have MSD Blaster coils all the way around. Any Ideas?

    Are all the wires in tight (clicked twice?) Have you tried popping the hood and playing with the throttle to hear where its coming from?

    Well.. a "popping" noise could mean so many things.. is it an exhaust leak popping sound.. or an electrical popping noise.. or....

    And is it ONLY in 2nd and nailing it when you hear it.. or only that you've noticed it then?
