Default Popping from exhaust

Every now and then under WOT i'll get some popping from the exhaust. The car runs strong, no hesitation or anything like that, just a popping from the exhaust. Its dosent happen very often and when it does its only like 1 or 2 pops the the rpm range. Any ideas?


Thanx

Def. Rich, yay for burning fuel in exhaust. I bet if someone is driving behind you the pops result in small clouds of smoke...black nasty sooty almost comical smoke.
