A exhaust manifold that is warped, cracked, or missing a gasket will make a sound like a engine miss. I usually look for soot near the suspected area to tell for sure.

It has been my experience that most backfiring problems are cause by intake vacuum leaks. You might want to check the torque on the intake manifold retaining bolts or it may be a worn intake manifold gasket. You might also want to inspect the vacuum hoses for cracks or loose connections. You might also check the timing. If the timing is off, it can also cause backfire and starting problems.
