Engine knocking. FUBAR?

I think I'm out of luck on this one, I loaned my car to a buddy and he noticed a clicking noise while he was out, sure enough he comes back and it's clicking like a card in the spokes of a bike. I was looking at other posts in the forum regarding it and it looked like it might just be a heatshield issue. I was driving home today when I noticed hard shifting and an occasional burning smell. The vehicle stalled once and is knocking like crazy. I don't quite know how to proceed from here. No engine lights or temp lights, but I don't have the original head unit in there either so it may have messed up the electronics.

Please Help, I'm a little worried, it's my only vehicle right now.

Oh yeah 70K miles on it.

Oh yeah, all these noises are coming pretty much directly from the engine.

My bad, It's an 06 GT. No warranty left I believe, I have to dig out the paperwork still.

IIRC, '06 came with 3/36 bumper-to-bumper only.
