Default help please

my 99 ram sport 5.9 . i just bought the truck a week ago and it was a 2 1/2 hr drive home . truck ran like new till i was a few blocks from home and it started to shutter . so i did a complete tune up on it due to check engine light said miss fire in cylinder 8 . that did nothing i found the intake leaking so i did the whole intake and plenum gasket . truck ran perfect for two days till i took a 15 mile trip yeastier day down the high way running 65 mph . out of nowhere it started backfiring and shutting again and before long light was back on for miss fire in cylinder 8 . now my rpm at idle is high . with the motor running there is like weird sound its almost like a watch ticking sound and a smell of raw fuel out the exhaust . so i swapped injector wires for 8 & 6 and it started way better even tho idle was still up there and it started poring a lot of moister and black chunks out the tail pipe . do you guys thank its a bad injector or valve . thanks for the help guys
