no this is adam p from san antonio texas. but still what would htat run? the 2.5ltr bottem and a valve job?

ok, when i accelerate i have a lot of smoke from the exhaust. but it is only at high rpm levels when i get the smoke. i can have it at 3000 in 3rd and no smoke and at 5500 in 3rd there is alot of smoke. is this the rings or valves or what. i also noticed that my subframe is broken and that is why i my alingment is off so bad, it must have happened when i jacked up the car and left it there for along time(3hours the passenger side was in the air). I also noticed alot of fluid under my car, it apears to be power stearing fluid but i am really not sure due to it mixing with the dirt and grime under the car. the car is parked and will be towed to the shop on mon, but i would like to have a heads up before i get the bad news.
i guess when it rains it pours...and to bad i was hoping to run in hte autocross next weekend...
any help is more than enough..thanks..
also if anybody is reading this and suggest a rebuild than give me a que via my email.

Bring it by the shop and have it looked at. If you really do need one then consider tossing in a 2.5 bottom end along with a valve job. This is the Adam from LA right?
