Hmm.. Any 5.0 I've ever owned was cold-natured and temperamental under cold start conditions. Until they warmed up, they'd pop and snort like you've described. My 410w never does that, it just asks for more money and bigger parts lol

Timing. Mine does this only when its cold. It got worst when i lowered the timing back to stock. When its advanced it runs better when cold.

If you don't feel like it, you could always try higher octane few and see if it goes away, but it sounds like timing.

Timing is perfect just checked

Up the timing a bit then get some higher octane gas and see what it does. Just to test it out.

How's the air filter and o2 sensors? Is it running rich on start up

I don't know if this is your problem, but I've heard that the smog tube going back into the mid pipe will cause popping of the exhaust.
Did you still have the smog pump connected and the smog tube connected to the mid pipe? If so, this could be your problem.

I'm not saying that's the problem but I've read that it's been some peoples issue in the past. When I did my off-road mid pipe I went ahead and took all that out and I have no popping.

Get rid of them.. Mine were original too, car ran like garbage, smelled really bad too. New O2s in, car runs a million times better and doesn't smell!

Check your coil plug pigtail as well. I know you said you replaced the cap and rotor, and I had similar issues on my 95 and I did replace both as well. Come to find out it was a bad wire on the pigtail that was causing it to arch out and not give a good connection.

It may not be the same for you but that part is only $10 and it saved me from buying a whole new distributor.


Aside from that it would have to be timing/electrical related somehow.


Good luck!
