Was it knocking? Did you check the oil? There are thousands of possibilities.

The oil itself no, what did the oil smell like, did it smell burnt, what did the smoke smell like, I'm assuming it came from the engine compartment, give us as much info as you can. Its very hard to diagnose a problem over the phone or Web

Re: Smoke !

I aint no car mechanic, but considering the versatility of the Ford engine over the decades, sound like you just blew the heads or piston rings. Basic mechanics says that smoke coming out the exhaust means blown rings, if its coming out the engine compartment, it means more. Exhaust header gaskets blown/worn, or improperly installed (could explain under hood smoke), or even a possibly blown head (I dont know head mech) . Blown rings would explain the loss of power, so would a worn clutch. No compression to drive the pistons etc. Oh yeah, you do have an aftermarket exhaust header, but bet you used the gaskets that came with the kit. I plan on installing a BBK shorty but will reuse the header gaskets due to ford spec gaskets being better (not that has anything to do with loss of power).

Best of luck man.
