Well there is your problem. Don't stop

Troll Elimination

It is probably just Trying to rid itself of the effects of trolls that show up here from time to time.
Nothing to worry about, just a Troll fart. It has to stand still to do it.

It would be fun if you could get a sound byte of one on here.
I'd love to hear one of those.
Is there any change in exhaust pressure, cadence, etc. from the tail pipe, or is this noticed from the vicinity of the intake manifold, or purge valve?

ROFLMAO

That's just too funny. I sooo want to hear that!

In England they refer to gays as Poofters. So for those that are concerned about driving a "Gay" car, the fact that it has the ability to sing a little Poof-Ting tune is just too much fun.
I'd have to take the Black Brabus in for a re-tune to try to butch it back down a bit. Maybe it needs the equivalent of a little RED BULL in it's tank.

I wasn't here. But, the OP, which was deleted by the poster, was quoted in a reply. Dittos on the OP's follow up response.

Not very active, but joined almost two years ago. Not typical of a troll.

Our gang didn't look too friendly. I hope I'm not a troll too.

He didn't appear to be a troll, sounded like a legitimate question to me...

Somehow "troll" got mixed in and the guy ran away
