JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...Initially, the description of "...bogging down and backfireing when give more than a quarter throttle..." could possibly be a fuel delivery issue (most likely) and/or ignition related (least likely). Proposed preliminary tries (if have not been done):• determine burn color of spark plug tip (old spark plug);• check/clean the fuel path from tank, pump, strainer / filter, lines;• including the injector;• ensure vacuum integrity at the intake manifold;• and no air leak(s) at the original air box + filter.
