So, I bought the EMPI black baja exhaust wirth U-Bend an went to install it today, and it didnt fit around the cylinder heads??...so i had to take them off and put on the old exhaust, and when i started it up it idled kinda funny and i decided to take it around the block, and everytime i shifted, it would backfire....any ideas?

I don't know why the exhaust doesn't fit correctly, but your backfiring's from an exhaust leak or leaks. Make sure all the gaskets are in place and that everything's tight. You might want to go get new exhaust gaskets all teh way around, just to be sure
