if the timing belt becomes streched, it changes the relationship between the camshaft

and crankshaft. Which will in turn effect the valve timing and engine performance.

That is why many engines use automatic tensioners to prevent this from happening

What would make a Chevy small block backfire?

Let's see, out of time, burned valve, stuck valve, valves adjusted too tight, stretched timing chain, flat cam, crossed plug wires. What is happening is this, the plug is firing the mixture in the cylinder, a valve is not sealing the explosion. Or, the spark plug is firing at the wrong time, thus igniting the "charge" in the exhaust, or intake manifold. In other words, the valve, and ignition timing, (spark) are out of sync.

Your chain guides(plastic guides on either side of the chain) may be worn or broken, or the chain may be stretched from wear.If the guides are missing or worn, the timing chain can cut through the front of the block.
