Default 02 pt cruiser backfire

Have an 02 pt cruiser that I have recently replaced the ecm upgrading from the AB to the AC,replaced timing belt tensioner and water pump now when I try to start it backfires through the intake had actually backfired enough that it caught the engine compartment on fire,I put it out before it damaged anything,my question is,is this a timing issue or should I be looking some where else?
