Are you running a fuel return line? Where is the poping coming from? The headers or inside the motor?

Did you check to make sure the filter was in the correct way? Spring towards the fuel filter, open end towards the carb.

yeah the fuel filter is right and it's coming from the headers. it's fine as long as you don't open the 4 barrels

Replace the pump with a good one. *since you have 2 pound on your gage you probably should have more with a good stock pump just setting in the garage goosing the thing* Possible the fuel line pinched or sucking air.
