Exclamation loud pop from my car

hey.. here's the deal.. when I was driving my car and pushed the gas I heard a very loud POP from my car.. you could really feel it when it did that.. I got home and tried to check my engine if I could figure out what happened but I cant figure it out.. I looked at all my electronics if the functioned properly and my mist on my wipers didn't work for a while then it finally worked but not as strong.. and it's like I lost some power when I drive.. the AC doesn't get cold.. and there's no cel light on.. I don't know what to do.. should I bring it in? anyone have an idea what it could be or happened? any advice would be helpful... thanks

That happens to my car once in a while. I think it's just backfire. Civics just have that much power.

yes I have an intake, a AEM V2, what kind of intake do you have SkipBarber?

Could it be just because of all the rain? because its been raining a lot for the past 2 weeks.

nope, sometimes i can get it to do it on call. get to about 2000 rpm and stay there for about 10 seconds, then just hit the throttle all the way and "POP" it's just backfiring and it probably did it when you had your oem intake too, you just didnt hear it.
oh btw, injen cai.
