Sorry to say, but that could be an early sign of a spun bearing.

I was hoping to hear differnet. have only one cylinder at 110psi the rest averaged 175 to 185. Slight miss at idle and low rpm cruising, but pulls good at wot. i guess run it till it dies. time for a 6.0 swap
If you pull it now, you may be able to salvage a lot of parts or sell them to offset the cost of the new engine. If it spins a bearing, you could trash everything from the oil pan to the intake manifold. Not wise.
