If it sounds a little like big tin cans bouncing around it might be your catalytic converters.
Just a guess but running rich will cause backfiring and will melt and glob up your converters.

wow thats great.....no i think the back firing thing is the gasket and im hopin the burning is the simple green

but lets say ur right how do I check to see if shes runnin rich and if they are clogin up wont the exhaust be REALLY hot

also how do i turn it down so it doesnt run so rich

and if it is can I just punch out the cats? wait i have to take them off for that can I just punch holes in them for now I dont have the money to get them replaced

because now i think about it, it does sound like tin cans i think

It could possibly be your exhaust hitting somewhere around the rearend area, that happened to me.
