Default Smoke and Stank in commute this AM

Hey guys first time poster-
I drive a 2003 Mini Cooper 1.6L 4Cyl 5speed Manual.

drove about 30 minutes to work before an issue at an intersection. light turned green and while in 1st gear my car would hardly crawl to start and RPMs climbed up to 6k. hazard lights and got off the road to open the bonnet (hood) and found dark smoke to the right of my motor and left of my battery- did eventually stop smoking with engine shut off but it STUNK like burning rubber. No fluids seem to have leaked at all.

Fluids are all in check and all parts I could see seemed okay- started it back up with no smoke and drove fine with no issues like high RPM or slow motion.

recently did a new ignition coil and spark plugs and wires for a code signaling misfires in cylinders 2 and 4. the codes are still showing misfires and now have an odor present since last ride.

Any ideas?? thanks for your time and best wishes
