stuck float
I agree, stuck float, take completely apart, clean float needle valve seat and try that, also try to get all the trash out of the gas tank and install, if it dont already have one, an inline filter between tank and carb, good luck!

Gas
Try running a higher octane gas. Mine back fires often, but it's not stock and I run low octane gas through it.

Mudbuddy...
I have a 35 Mudbuddy thats no where near stock that did the same thing. I took the carbs apart and found nothing wrong. Did some adjustments to the idle screws and the backfiring eventually went away. It stills pours gas out of the vent tube when the engine falls to one side. Havent used it in the last year due to work so I havent tried to fix it. If you need some help contact Rick at the Boat Doctor in Harahan. Always helps me out.

thanks for the insight everyone. i am a capable machanic this engine is high performance. the carb is not the issue. i need some advice on any other ideas that could be the issue. this engine turns 8200 rpms in the water so nothing about it is stock. i need someone with a high level of mechanical intuition thanks

float sticking or
float sticking due to bad needle valve trash or bent intake valve for the backfiring and presurizing the carb forceing gas out the wrong end just my two cents

I would think it is in the carb also
I problaby don't have the knowledge you have so I won't suggestion anything. I would love to know what you have done to get 8200 rpms. I did the single carb upgrade and the Stainless exhaust but am scare to turn over 4300. Where can I find out what is safe to turn and do you have any other suggestion starting with the cheapest or biggest bang for my buck?

engine
bent valve or push rod, and if you are turning 8200 rpm like you say you are your lucky if thats all you got. high performance or not 4200 is about the max you should run that engine, you may go 5500 and get away with it for a while but your asking for trouble. you neeeeeeed to put pitch in your prop or get a bigger prop. call hopkins propeller hell make you a prop.

Tach
If you are seeing 8200 rpms you need to replace your tach!

KABOOM
If your turning that many RPMs all I can say is wait for the big bang. KABOOM is in the near future.
