Here's a weird one. I recently installed (with some help of course) a Massive strut bar. Went on clean but now when I first start my car, I hear a small "bumping" sound for a split second. I suspect its either the airbox or maybe the intake right behind the mass air flow sensor hitting the bar when the engine first cranks, but I'm not sure. Anyone have this going on? Any thoughts?

The easiest way to tell would be to insert a rag or sponge between those areas and the bar, start it up and see if it makes the noise. If its gone you've pretty much localized the problem. How you provide a permanent fix? That may include trying to adjust the location of some of those components.

Good call, I'll try that later on.
