It is very likely that the ISC of your car is the culprit. The underlying problem your car has is an overload of energy--the AC turning on is the breaking point. For more information related to this that is very helpful is this handy diagnostic article:

Turning the heat on makes lot of noise


If the blower motor is noisy, the bearing may be getting bad inside the blower. This will require replacement of the blower motor unit. In some cases, foreign objects can fall into the motor casing assembly also making a noise. The motor will need to be removed for inspection

Loud clanking noise in gear if the clutch is not engaged


Almost sounds like a throwout bearing problem. Either way, bring the car back and make them fix it. It will be covered under the warranty so dont let them try to convince you otherwise.

Ticking noise


It is part of the waste gate just above the gas tank. It periodically checks for leaks and pressurizes and releases. Gives a ticking noise when it does this. Not a problem and GM is aware of this and said its normal on our cars.
