What we call the result of 'incorrect ignition timing'. I'll try not to do this again.

From the dark black color of the insides, I'd have to say that he engine was running a bit on the rich side... couple that with a slight exhaust leak to let in more O2 and you're all ready for a backfire on decelleration...

xr&gt, - my wife did something similar to what you describe when the throttle stuck wide open on my old wagon.... she shut it off at 70+mph, coasted to a stop then tried to restart it with the throttle still stuck. BOOM!!! BOTH mufflers gone!!!

Just couldn't resist.
