my car does some backfiring, when I let go of the gas at around 5000rpm, could that be something bad?

a long resonator can decrease the backfiring quite a bit

Mine causes the muffler tip to be burnt black. Some have said to see small flames when im WOT then shifing.

IMO if your car runs slightly rich it isn't THAT bad, preferably better than running lean.

SteveZ is right,Resonator's do help a lot. I have 2.5" exhuast and an 18" long resonator and I only hear the occasional "pop" at 4000RPM and over. If I didn't have that sucker Id be shooting mad flame's out the Back!!!!!
