Turbo or no?

I've heard it's common with turboed cars. Could be the weather or a lot of other things. Google some stuff about backfiring at high rpms.

Well considering it could be so many things, it's hard to pinpoint one solution on a car issue, lol. But I would suggest looking up problems on the internet and seeing if it makes sense, or if it's an easy fix, try to fix it. And if the problem doesn't stop, take it to a car expert. Although it could be something just really simple like weather.

And by "car expert" I mean people you know that you won't have to pay just for them to look at the problem or try to help.

That's good. Hopefully he will find the problem out. Or at least narrow down the amount of problems it can be. Lol. But good luck.

It might have been detonation. In my experience, I would assume you might have a bad timing chain.

It can't hurt to do a compression test after the new distributor is installed.
