Can you determine if it's an exhaust pop or from in the engine? If the latter, it could be a valve tick.

If "popping" sound is more of a tick tick tick tick.......I'm guessing a valve.
If so, I poured a can of Sea Foam in my crank case and it went away. Good Luck.

Uhhh...if the universe is still expanding, WTF is it expanding into?
