2000 7.3 engine backfire

okay i have a 2000 7.3 psd last night i was out coyote hunting and on my way to the next hunting spot and i noticed what sounded like a exhaust leak so i thought my perometer fell out again so i headed to the house and started to notice a loss in power i got home and noticed that the pop i was hearing was actually coming out of my air filter and it flutters like its out of time. if anyone has any thoughts of what it might be please let me know im gonna try to make a video of it and get a link on here in a little bit thank you

What did you do to it before it started this? I've never heard of it on a 7.3 before.

Man all I can think is boost because ever since I put all the performance on it. It has never seen over 3000rpm and what do you mean by what did I do to it before this

I've heard of and seen this before. If I was going to blame what causes it it's normally from over revving, and that's probably even more possible for the OP since he has a manual trans. Seems like it mostly only happens on tuned trucks as well.
