Well the backfiring & shutting down sounds like a timing issue, then again the dash & lights sounds like a electrical issue, Recheck it all, be sure you have good engine to frame grounds even if you have to route new ones, Were any of these issues happening before the timing chain was replaced?
I WAS TOLD POSSIBLY REPLACE THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER IN THE DASH BUT WASNT SURE IF THAT WOULD FIX THE BACK FIRING OR NOT? I JUST DID A CONPLETE TUNE UP A YEAR AGO ON IT PLUGS WIRES CAP BUG EVERYRHING EVEN FUEL FILTER I NORMALLY REPALCE ALL THAT STUFF YEARLY
THE BACK FIRING BWAS HAPPENING BEFOR TIMING CHAIN WAS REPLACED THEN WE FOUND THE CRANKCASE SENSOR TO BE BAD AND REPLACED THAT DIDNGOOD FOR ALMOST A YEAR THEN IT STARTED HAPPENING AGAIN
