It really seems like it's time to take a step back and carefully map out exactly what you have installed, the steps you've taken, etc. Start from the beginning to do some logical troubleshooting.

My o2 sensor came unplugged yesterday, that wouldn't be an indicator of the rough running problem? I only noticed this last night when lookin for voltage leaks

Well it seems a piston or connecting rod on the passenger side has given out, when I bump it over at a certain revolution it sounds like metal clatter, an or something hitting the oil pan

I'm going to hold off on running it anymore and see what I can do about possibly pulling the motor again, so tired of dealing with problems

Ive made a list of the things I've currently installed and or done to the truck since the v8 build began

Now would be a good time to circle back and post the whole list of what's there, what the base pieces are (engine, PCM, etc) and let people with fresh eyes look things over. At this point you're mired in the middle of it and it can be hard to see which way is up (been there).

Understandable lol confusion has been the biggest blockade in this endeavor and worry about something breaking, part of the reason why I'm on here asking around for this or close to this problem lol
