Default Exhaust Leaks

My engine threw a code that i had a cylinder 4 misfire so i changed the plugs and wires on sat and when i started it up i found out that i have an exhaust leak. but when i start to drive the truck no it has no power and i really have to give it gas just to get it moving. on the interstate i have to keep it around 3k rpm just to keep it around 70 mph. my question is can an exhaust leak really cause that much power loss? I also traced down a vacuum leak and fixed it but i didnt tell that much difference in performance. I have no clue what i did.

BTW im not getting a cylinder 4 misfire anymore and no new codes are showing up

any help would be fantastic!!!

How many miles on the truck? Have you checked for clogged catolytic converters?
