V6 2.5 Engine problem

On pulling out from a junction this evening, a minor pop, and then a loud ticking noise from the engine. Sound of lots of air rushing through a small hole, proportional to the revs. Noises relate proportionally to the engine, more revs, more noise. Put the clutch in and the noise goes away. Sounds like its coming from just behind the instruments. Engine is noticeably down on power, wont rev. Just as i got home, noticed the red injector light was on.

Luckily, going in to have a clutch slave cylinder replaced tomorrow.
Any ideas what this is, where can i point the mechanic in the direction of?

ee's preetty car no?

First place I would look is whether the plenum chamber has popped off the rubber tubes
