Had to leave Boxster at shop :-(

Well, my 06 Boxster failed on me today. I could hear a slight popping sound at idle. Kind of like pop corn but much slower and more random. When I got it on the lift it is coming from the passenger side of the engine. Car still ran fine and there was no change in the temp guage. Any ideas? Had to leave it at the shop because they were closed for the day.

Exhaust leaking? Any aftermarket exhaust plumbing under wraps?

No that's what I thought at first. To me and I'm not a mechanic at all it sounds like maybe the water pump??? The sound goes faster with acceleration which has me worried.

No I know the sound you mean, you can only hear it at idle or when slightly reving the engine. When I got under the car it sounded like a pop/grind on the right or passenger side.
