the last couple times i've driven it, it's been making a noticeable ticking noise. now i haven't been getting on it at all since it started because i also notice that there isn't as much power there either, there's just not as much pop when i stab the throttle. the noise is only there when i accelerate at any speed, not when i'm just cruisin. and when it first started i had just ran it pretty hard and i had some thin white smoke come out the back and it smelled inside the car. i'm thinking it has something to do from the S/C and the strain it's putting on the engine. my plans are that since it's going to be stored next weekend until approx. mid March, that i'll just get a complete engine check and get it fixed then. what do you think it is? i'm worried about what to do. but i won't be driving it anymore this year for sure.
