The backfire makes me think "timing belt." Has the timing belt been changed
in the last 100K miles or so?

Does it "backfire" out the intake or the exhaust?

i bought it nonrunning, i've adjusted the timing 4 times, but it just
backfires, i'm guessing it's a problem with the timing obviously since it's
backfiring. whats the firing order? 1-4-3-2?

firing order is 1-3-4-2. check that, then check the valve timing.

I think where Mike is coming from is that the belt might have jumped a
couple of teeth. I'd get a timing light and make sure you are in the
ballpark.
