You might have some ticking and tinging, aka cooling down of the exhaust, basic expansion and contraction, but not loud popping and cracking noises. Not sure what you have going on there Mike.

Popping and tinging is normal, expansion and contraction of metal is normal. If its cracking....that aint normal.
