The expression "NOT FIRING ON ALL CYLINDERS" comes to mind...
You need to switch out the the ECU to a computer that is compatible to the 5.7

Exactly, u have to switch the ECU. AND- would be best if it were for the same year as your truck with 5.7.
After installation of the ECU, Hook up the battery, let it idle for a few minutes, then drive it in order to allow the computer to recalibrate itself. Drive Interstate for 5 min, 40 - 50mph for a couple spurts, stop and go for another five- then take it home. shut it off, let cool down all the way- Restart and see that i's all fine...
