Install Complete

due to my awesum.... rookie installation skills and after lots of frustrating moments and a few curse words, oh and of course wayne's guidance, i finally got my crank pulley, water pump pulley, and cold air intake installed, took it for a test drive, everything seems to run perfectly, though one thing did concern me is that when i put my foot down it accelerates fine, but after shifting there is a pop sound... anyone kno what tha could be?

when you put the MAF onto the intake it probably got touched or dirty or something

mine never backfired ever...so I'm not really sure

so i go to the shop to find out why its backfiring, the guy says my truck has a random backfire, cant figure out which cylinder its in and all my fluids and what not need to be replaced since its been a while, and i have the wrong plugs and bad wires on my truck so i gotta spend like 600 bucks on a tuneup and transmission flush (already did the steering pump flush)
