Backfiring thru intake not good on these. Plastic intakes. Blew a hole in one of mine one time. Did you ever spray starting fluid or gas directly into the intake? If so inspect intake for cracks. If not double check the dist, plug wires on correct plugs and timing.

Double and triple check your firing order and ignition timing
