When doing the pair valve is it best to leave the read valve in or out.

You can go either way but it doesn't hurt anything leaving them in, and if you get the plates with the dimple in them you don't even need to remove the screw on top. With the dimple plates its as easy as removing the stock cover and bolt on the new plate and your done.

There $18.50 & free S/H on this site, and the quality is top notch

What is your a/f set at.
If the a/f is opened up too much it can cause some light backfire.

An exhaust leak at the head can also cause some decell popping.
Make sure the acorn nuts aren't bottoming out on the stud and torque to 17ft/lbs.

I purchased the plates and removed the valves, used a hole saw and removed the end plates of my pipes and pulled out the baffles. Installed a stage 2 carb kit and a K&N air filter. This is how it sounds. I can get it to pop on decel when I want to. It has to be just the right conditions.
