SOURCE: power loss and black smoke?
I had a similar issue to this after I got in a VERY small fender bender (literally) in an 87 Turbo Supra. In my case, my pasenger fender got pushed in JUST enough to crack a charge pipe and cause a boost leak.
Basically, what was happening was the turbo would spool and build boost, the mass fair flow sensor would read all this air coming in and tell the ECU to dial up the the appropriate amount of fuel. When the air reached the cracks in the charge pipe, it would escape out of them. Thus there was a much lower air-to-fuel ratio, causing less fuel to combust, which lead to power loss and black smoke out of the exhaust.
My guess is either an oxygen sensor, or more likely a boost leak.
Good luck mate.

Testimonial: "Thanks, I'll check it out."
This is not what you wanted to hear. I had a Ranger (Emerald Green) The low oil pressure was caused most likely by a rod end bearing that was for some reason worn therefore leaving a gap in the bearing mating survaces so oil was running out the sides of the rod end bearing causing the low oil presure. The ticking that went crazy was the rod end bearing that destroyed itself and fell into the oil pan.
Quite possibly you now have a broken connecting rod as for the reason it shut down unless the engine computer sensed ZERO oil pressure and shut off the ignition.
I can tell you your problem is probably not the oil pump.
I see the following instore for you
1. head removal / valve resurfacing
2. crankshaft polishing
3. rod end bearing replacement and possibly resizing
The oil pump is the least of your problems.
Just being honest so you can understand what could be instore for you. Sadly it is not cheap.

SOURCE: white smoke when reved up
White smoke on startup could be a head gasket leak between the water jacket and the cylinder. Won't always show in the oil. Antifreeze makes it smell oily or sweet. Compression test will tell for sure. Bluish is oil that was burned. White is usually water or oil into exhaust after combustion.
