Question 2003 PT Turbo noise

So, i love my '03 Orange Dream Cruiser to death, and its my pride and joy. But theres been a few problems. my power steering always gives me trouble and now there is a very stange noise. Im new to the Mechanics of these cars so i only can explain whats wrong.

When i start my engine there is a ticking noise coming from the front end of the engine block. I assume this is the power steering pump again. But that is just a guess. I also have noticed a loud drowning out noise that happens around 40-55 mph. The noise is still made when i switch it into neutral and I gets louder the faster i go. But the noises are different when im accelorating and not accelorating When i hit the gas it has a noise that sounds like its rotating if that makes any sence. but when i let off the gas it starts to drown out and sound like somethigns trying to come to a stop. I have read that it could be the Trans, or that it could be the Turbo. Both these are not something I want to hear XD. But i want to know how to fix it.

Any thoughts?

Try turning to one or the other side to see if noise changes. If so, one of your noises is a wheel bearings.
