What causes backfire through exhaust on deceleration?
What Causes Engine Backfire On Deceleration? An afterburn or backfire from a vehicle’s engine on deceleration happens when unburnt fuel combusts or ignites in the exhaust pipe. The result is a loud bang or pop when you move your foot off of the gas pedal.
What causes exhaust pops?
“Pops and bangs” are created by unburned fuel in the exhaust system. When excess fuel enters the exhaust system it increases in temperature and ignites inside the exhaust instead of the combustion chamber. The noise can be exaggerated by fitting a decat or full decat exhaust system.
Can a vacuum leak cause backfire?
Shultz lists a number of causes of backfire and muffler explosion. Among these are engine-vacuum leak, worn distributors, incorrect ignition timing, dirty or worn carburetors or worn parts in the intake or exhaust-valve train.

What size idle jet for a dual carb?
Almost every dual carb application I have seen with VW engines use a 55-60 idle jet. Center-mounted carbs need a RICHER (larger) idle jet, since the carb is so far from the cylinders and the fuel condenses on the way there (keep your manifold pre-heater).
