C200 auto slow to pick up

1997 C200 Elegance 1977cc auto

After slowing down in gear, approaching junction or stopping for instance, car is slow to pick up on subsequent acceleration. Feels as if car is misfiring and crackling sound heard in exhaust. Didn't happen before I had a new exhaust system put on.

Also on idle, or on applying throttle in neutral, exhaust sounds like it's blowing but from front section.

Fuel economy also way down, though I wouldn't drive this car to save money

Any ideas?
