I’ve owned my 12 valve for about six months and I’ve been redoing it the entire time and I knew it ran and sounded great when it ran but today I decided to give her some beans after sitting for two days and it backfired. Not sure if this is something to be concerned about but I don’t know any engine mods it has when I got it I wasn’t told much about performance parts. But it rolls a little bit, so I think it’s got better injectors.

Back fired, a funny term for a fuel injected diesel engine. So was this "backfire" after hammering down with a sudden release of the throttle?

Don't mind him. Despite how he can sometimes come off, he means well and has a lot of experience.

What you heard, if I interpret your response correctly , is usually referred to as turbo bark on these pages. You can read up on it, but it is something that can destroy your turbo. In the gas turbine engine world it is known by it's corrret name, compressor stall.
