    ok guys having an new running problem,
    this is going to be very hard to explain so please bare with me....

    driving along at a normal pace (flat road) i increase acceleration gradually up through the revs to about 3500rpm,
    i develop what i would say is almost like a miss fire then a popping noise coming from where the intercooler is and a
    metallic noise clanking? from the mid to front end of car.
    this will happen through out the revs and gear change for about a mile or two,
    then be ok for a day or two.....

    front end will be off soon so ill check to see if intercooler is ok
