look at your intake hoses and make sure none of them were blown off their places as a result of the backfire.

then take a good look at your MAF(Mass Airflow Sensor) clean if dirty. OR,

try pulling out the plug of the MAF. Start car. If ur car runs better without the MAF connected, changed are it went bad.

Good Luck
