I don't know much about mechanical issues... I'll try to get someone who does.

So no actual code, like a p0174 or something? How mechanically inclined are you? Theres some steps I'd like you to take right off the bat, does it knock immediately at start up after cooling down, or is it there from start up too? also, lower on the block or towards the top? It could very well be a valve not operating, but if thats the case you'd then have to figure out which one is not performing correctly. Easiest way to do that is with a compression test

Are you mechanically inclined enough to remove the valve cover and check the valve train?

Good, let me know if theres anything blatantly obvious out of the ordinary. However, before this id definitely recommend making sure that its not spark or fuel related, you say the knocking didnt start til after it was misfiring a bit? thats a pretty good indication that it may not be valve train related.
It may be tomorrow before i reply back, one because its 12 now and i have work at 8, and two, because im waiting for a password reset for my ford technician account, which should be in tomorrow sometime

Okay sounds good. And yeah it did act up a bit before it done this but this is not a spark knock.. I'm almost sure it's in the valve cover.

I'd pull the spark plug first. Inspect it, then do a compression test. Does your mustang have an oil pressure gauge in the cluster? You need to be certain you've got adequate oil pressure.

So I took the valve cover off and I found a valve that had some metal peices on it.. That looks like my issue.

Most likely it's a keeper that came loose. Usually means the valve came loose too which could damage the valve and piston

Yikes. At least it seems you may know what it is, but that won't be an easy fix. I have a feeling the cams and everything are going to have to come off.

There could be some in the filter. But either way that head needs to come off for inspection

I've seen a case where a keeper has come off, wiggled down and made a nice gash in the valve itself

So far I've had two local mechanic friends look at it and now a third one is pulling in the driveway. Hopefully we can fully diagnose it before the night. But idk.. Looks like I may have to pull the motor and I don't have any close friends with a lift they can go without for a week or so. Hopefully it's in the valve train so I won't have to. But all in all, the worst that can happen, is I get a new rotating assembly.. I just won't be going nitrous for a while longer.

I'm gonna to pull it... There's either something in there that has come loose, or something has broke. I'm still really confused as to why there were peices of something in the valve train.. That worrys me. But like I said, if worse comes to worse, ill be getting a whole rotating assembly a little early..
