Exhaust popping sounds at idle

Hi all

I recently swapped out Berk street axleback for race axleback and have encountered some weird noise.

While idling, sometimes i would hear popping sounds that sound like it's coming from the exhaust. I'm not talking about the pops and gurgles while driving, i hear the strange popping while idling.

Even weirder is the fact that the sound disappears when i roll down my window... Anyone experienced this before?

Probably an exhaust leak somewhere. probably the top portion of the exhaust somewhere reverberating on the cabin, which is why you cant hear it with the windows down.

Actually, I've been experimenting a little and it turns out that the popping sound only appears when I have the a/c turned on.
