Road draft tube.... pulsating crankcase pressure... you've got broken rings... burnt piston...

Easy to fix just the one...

Not sure if there is another clue but I usually always have exhaust coming out of the road draft tube.

What would be my best steps moving forward? I feel like I would need help with this job as it seems somewhat complex given my current skill level.

You will always see a bit of smoke from the vent tube.

As to help since you give no clue to your location it
is tough other than to ask if you belong to a local
club or are you near a shop.

I will say that you were close when you did the oil
return tube O-rings. Read the shop manual and do some
reading here for help. Many here have dove into these
kinds of projects and made it work well.

Thanks for all the advice guys! I really appreciate it.

Here is a video that shows it. The idle is super smooth and car runs well for the most part. Yet, there is the puff puff from under.

I go to college away from home so my car is at my home 5ish hours away. So when I go home during break, I will be able to see the car then.
