Kinda hard without being there. Could have always been there and you just hear it now because of the stacks. It may be your GPR kicking off, it makes a pretty loud pop!!

it is the EBPV(exhaust back pressure valve). garauntee it. all it is, is a baffle up by the engine that closes temperarely to keep more heat to the engine so it warms up faster.
