Id also say its misfiring/ not firing, it should sit there and pur even with broken mounts. Being an 8, itll be a little bit harder to pick a misfire. The ECU has an inbuilt cylinder balance test. It turns off the injectors 1 at a time and logs the drop in rpm. It should log a fault if the one cylinder doesnt drop rpm.
Another thing you can check quickly is the dizzy cap. God bless the 8's with the dizzy right on top of the motor. Neer ner ner 6 cyl owners
