Have changed several of the intake gaskets at my shop. Seems to happen quite often on the 5.9 V-8.

You have all the syptoms too.

GRH-
I looked back at my post and I came off like I was flaming you, sorry about that, not intended. You are right, you never know, but he has all the symptoms of the plenum gasket. I hope it's not the plenum, but I would put money on it that it is. He needs to do the tests listed to check the plenum, then look for other stuff.

Waterfoul-
I think I had less than $150.00 in the entire fix. Give your local dealer a call and talk to the parts dept. They are VERY familiar with this fix. The 3.9 V6, 318, and 360 all suffer from this gasket issue.
