95dodgeV10 is on a distinguished road

sounds like a broke/bent valve hitting the piston or most likely a rod bearing going out. might even be a broken valve spring allowing the engine to run fine till higher rpms till the weakened spring can no longer close the valve fast enough. can you tell the general area of the noise? such as one side or the other or louder at the oil pan or so on
