I have a 91 2.5 4cyl 5spd. Excellent shape and slowly getting better. I’ve had it for a few months and it always has a bit of pop and crackle on deceleration or down shifting. I just had to replace my clutch so I thought while I’m pulling it all apart why not spiff up the rusty old exhaust. Nice Magnaflow and ported it out in front of the passenger wheel. Sounds great except it made the popcorn thing quite a bit louder. Some people love that sound I don’t mind it but it’s all the time and a little garish for my tastes. Any thoughts on how to minimize it? Or is it just part of the charm?

It is probably running too rich when letting off to cause that sound. Some of the younger set think that sound is cool so tuners offer an option that creates that sound for them but personally I think it's obnoxious.
