Exhaust Gurgle... Tune issue/PE issue/ or normal?

I come from a FI background or either stock plain jane vehciles. This a 328 with PE/ PI / Stage 2 AA . On Decel / low speeds exhaust makes a gurgle, albeit not very loud but its there. To me it signals unburn fuel ie tune issue... but hey it could be normal as well. Just wanted to hear your thoughts... thanks


Dont know if this matters .. but I have 3 stage sitting in the garage that should be going on in the week....

The gurgle is supposed to be there. I have an 08 328 N51 (which has a 3 stage intake stock) and I have PE, PI and AA stage 2 and my exhaust gurgles loud especially from a cold start. It sounds good imo

Thanks for taking the time to reply....as long as others have it going on as well I'll chalk it up as normal.

I have the n51 with PE and no tune. It also gurgles and pops at low speeds. Love that sound!

lol I deliberately downshift at low speeds just to hear the gurgle. It gives me boners.

Mine pops quite a bit less now with the stg 2 tune, I imagine it leaned out a bit therefore less unburnt fuel hitting hot exhausts.

Yep, that's normal, it'll pop too on decel. Google/Bing overrun or deceleration fueling.
