Hello,
I have a 1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse that has had a ton of work put into it, however since I've owned the car there has been an alarming "popping" noise everytime I make a sharp right hand turn but only when its under power. I believe it to be something with the transmission because you can literally see the wheel stopping and "popping" while the noise is occurring. I dont have much experience with transmissions and was hoping to find out a little more information if possible. Thanks for all/any help!

How do you see the wheel make a popping sound? Are you running alongside the car or hanging your head out the window? If you can see movement in a wheel, that's a serious suspension problem that should be inspected at a tire and alignment shop. They're experts at finding the causes of rattles, popping, and other noises and vibrations. You will not see the results of transmission problems.
