the "pops and misses" are symptoms of a LEAN MIS-FIRE.if the carb was not jetted after installing the pipes, this could be the cause of your problem.but you should also check for intake leaks. spray carb cleaner on the intake seal with the engine at idle. you will know right away if you have a leak. correct any leaks before doing anything else.let me know if you need more help.Steve
