Hey guys, I’m new to the forums and I’m hoping to get some insight on my issue. If I build boost hard in first gear I get a click sound, almost like a muffled backfire. I don’t think it’s the transmission first gear is smooth through revs. It almost feels like something along the drivetrain slipping when it happens but it’s only first gear, could it be my differential slipping? Is it a backfire? Has anybody had this issue before?
2014 2.0t premium, manual trans. Thanks guys

Okay so i already feel stupid for asking my question before researching, I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s detonation. Not sure why it would only happen in first gear but glad I’m catching it now. I only ever use 93 octane and the only mod to the engine is a forge bov, stock tune, never turned up the actuator. My intercooler is dented, but it’s not running any hotter than usual. I feel like I can’t just put some octane booster in and forget about it. Why are the main causes for detonation and how do I eliminate it? Thanks again.
