Hi Lockpics!
Your problem with the backfiring actually sounds like a couple of spark plug wires switched. Ive had this before where my car would start but would hesitate and backfire because of a couple of wires misplaced. Check your wiring diagram (or on your manifold) and try again. Good luck... Catillac!
