Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the engine lacks power and is backfiring after having the head off I would first suspect improperly routed spark plug wires, but there could be a valvetrain issue, cam timing or cam damage, damaged spark plugs; there are many possible causes for what you're describing.

Have you checked for fault codes?
