    I have noticed lately that sometimes when decelerating, I will get just a few pops, its not like happening all the time, just occasionally so far. No huge backfires either, actually, it sounds pretty cool, I am assuming that this is OK and shouldn't cause any harm or does not warrant a service call. No codes thrown, what do you guys and gals think?

    I can't comment on the Hellcat (yet) but my 2015 392 exhaust will cackle and pop when downshifting the M6. Nothing wrong when it happens on the 392, normal and sounds bad ass.

    Can't comment that you're experiencing the same thing though.

    The gas nowadays is crap and the cars are set to run rich. Just the way it is.

    As designed. Do a couple high revs while in park and it'll happen on decel.
