Default LN3 problem

well before I put the Reatta away for the winter, I was driving it and so weird things started happening

I would be driving around 30-50 mph and just cruising hardly touching the gas maybe coasting.

there would be a pulsing prrrrrr noise heard out of the exhaust (2.5 no cat dual exhaust)

prrrrr"" then nothing" "prrrrr" "then nothing" until I get back on the gas.

the vacuum gauge twitches when this happens and a small twitch in the car (hardly noticeable).

the only thing I can think of is a bad wire maybe?

Wow..could be tons of stuff.

One of the latest I've seen are bad coils. Worth checking them with an ohm meter and looking for vacuum leaks.
