did you make sure all the spark plug are in the right spot? if you are getting a back fire it sounds like you might have put a plug wire in the wrong spot or all the wire may one spot over from where they are suppose to be. firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. the black dot is the one that should be number 1. it is so easy to possibly have all the wire off by 1 hole.

Definitively a firing order problem
