    Re-check chain alignment , if it's backfiring(through throttle body) then your valve timing is possibly off.

    Other thought...........Had an old mitsubishi brought to me years ago , (in pieces) , put it together and was spitting back through intake .....ended up this thing had 3 converters on it and ALL 3 were stopped up causing excessive backpressure (engine can't exhale) loosened exhaust to create a leak and it fired right up. IF you haven't started taking the chain stuff back apart , that might be something to investigate?
