Have you tried driving it with the belts off, one by one?

In any event, I think the best thing you can do for wintry conditions is invest in some winter tires. Numerous videos show that 2wd with winter tires beats out 4wd with all-season or summer...

I dunno, but I'll tell you that 32s with 3.07 gearing is great on the highway, but not so fun around town...although the 401 can still torque its way through the lousy gearing.

What about a helical...

Couple of quick points...

1) The 454 tune is, of course, dumping in WAY more fuel in a lot of areas, so it makes sense that the backfire is worse with that tune.

2) Looks like the commanded timing...

Probably not related to your issue, but how tight is the fit between the actual PCV valve and the rubber grommet on the intake manifold? Sometimes they loosen up and induce a vacuum...

Very good. I was going to suggest looking at your tach input very closely and seeing if you are getting the correct counts just before, and during, the backfire. That's always step #1. Sometimes a...

Did you run a carburetor after the rebuild, and did it do this when you were running the carburetor but before the EFI was installed?

Not sure what the flow rate is, but I would wager that the TBI unit from a Chevy 4.3l V6 (160hp) would work just fine on a 230 once you get it mounted. I'm running a 454 unit on a 401 (407 actually,...

There are smaller TBI units that will work on the 258. Or like DarkMonohue suggested, just go factory MPFI. There are a lot of better options than fiddling with carburetors.
