2002 Mustang GT loud tap during warm up....

Hi everyone,
i drive a 2002 GT. Just recently i've been hearing this loud Tap/pop during warm up of my car.
I only hear ONE tap/pop about every 20-30 seconds.
It goes away once the engine is warm.
What could this be ???
thanks

Just started up the car to take a closer listen.
And it sounds like its loudest from underneath the car, the exhaust maybe...

Its sounds kinda similar to when you shut off the car and you hear some taps from the exhaust...
Again i only hear ONE tap every 20 seconds while warming up the car.
