When I pulled out of my driveway this morning I heard a loud pop and then my car starting making a

From what you say most likely exhaust leak. I bet it goes away when you let off of gas and gets louder when you step on gas. They had to remove exhaust manifolds to do heads and they now have a leak. Its not that bad of a job to repair.
