You are very welcome.
If it is a specific cylinder causing the misfire, it should show up by scanning the computer. You may not need all coils.
Next, a backfire is often caused by a lean fuel mixture. Take a look through this link:
It could be the result of a vacuum leak.
Let me know if you pulled diagnostic trouble codes that may point us in a specific direction. Also, let me know if by chance you have a live data scanner. If you do, please let me know what both the short and long term fuel trims are.
Also, here are the directions for replacing the intake gasket. The torque specs and sequence are included. The attached pictures correlate with the directions.
