I have a honda del sol with a b16a2

I have some problems.. My engine sounds rough and weak.. i dont feel much power when i floor it... esp when i rev the engine ova 5500rpm n vtec engages.. big cloud of smoke blows out of my exhaust... and it coughs every time i take my foot off the accelrator... is it the Head gasket that has a leak/split or is the piston rings worn out?? or something???

thanks for ur help guys

doesn't white smoke usually indicate a blown gasket?
