I get the most popping when I let go of gas when shifting from 2nd to 3rd gear. The popping goes away when I clutch in and let it coast, but when I engage the gear it starts popping again.
Is this normal? And why?

For me, that is good mileage! LOL I haven't checked my AFR as I haven't installed my LM1 yet, but I'm 99% certain it is running rich at wide open throttle as I have the euro fuel head and Andial fuel enrichment. After all, when I let off between shifts, all the extra gas goes out the exhaust and lights up the sky! I've gotten single digit MPG as I leave the car in 2nd while cruising in town so I can just romp on it.
