have you checked things like the plugs/leads in the right order? exhaust manifold tight? does it sound like a tractor because of an exhaust leak?

Yee sounds like either exhaust leak or or plugs/leads order wrong or maybe missing a cylinder...

recheck all your leads make sure of order and all are connected fully.
