You probabily have an exhaust leak. Either that, or it is just fumes being ignited within your exhaust pipes. Some popping is normal, expecially if you have a custom exhaust.
Your dealership should be able to tell you what's wrong

Reset transmission

put it in 1st gear, drive it and get up to 50 mph. once you hit 50, take your foot off the gas and let it decelerate at its own pace, no brakes. it should pop out of limp at that point. Also, this needs to be done cold.
