Sounds horrible now!!

Ive got an 88 GT. I replaced my radiator (and stupidly not my thermostat) and my car got stolen that night. It was recovered one day later and when I picked it up the radiator cap was off, wedged next to the battery and the car sounds like crap. I was able to drive it home 9 miles but didn't have the normal power. I don't think the head gasket is blown because the oil is very clean still... It kinda sounds like it has a really bad exhaust leak but more coming from the engine?? Cracked intake manifold maybe??

That doesn't sound good, if that car was driven with no antifreeze your motor might be fried, , blown head gaskets, cracked manifold ? It could be anything. I would strip in down pull intake and heads off and see!
