Your best bet is to find someone who can help you sort out your problem. It is 
most likely that the solution is simple and you will only make it worse by 
spending money to change to something non-standard, which will almost certainly 
not work correctly right out of the box.

You're in the right place to find help. Why not post your approximate location 
and tell us what year and engine you have. Someone here will know everything 
there is to know about it, and there MIGHT even be someone close to you.

If your engine is backfiring, the first thing I would suspect would be 
SOMETHING associated with the ignition.
