Default Loud Pop sound while shifting gears?

About a month ago I started noticing a pretty loud popping sound coming from my exhaust while shifting gears during hard acceleration. It only happens at highspeeds. It doesnt ALWAYS happen either.. but when it does it sounds like some F&F bullshit... maybe there's flames back there who knows lol.

Any ideas?

b16a2 with stock intake manifold and just intake and exhaust with custom piping [dont know the exact size of the pipe either]

Did you remove the cat? If you did there is your answer. I used to shoot out flames out my old car because it was running to damn rich without cat.

I had my cat gutted out like 4 months ago. This just started happening about a month ago. Any ideas?

My car did the same thing with a header, no cat, stock piping and straight through muffler. I noticed without the cat and 2nd o2 sensor, my seemed to run rich.

Anyone notice I said it didnt happen when the cat was gutted out but around 4-5 months later? Also would a gutted cat cause a car who's o2 sensor is before the cat to do this?
