You are not getting enough of one or more of the following;
1. Fuel 2. Air 3. Spark 4. Vacuum
See possible causes and fixes below 1. Fuel -If carburated, may need to be rebuilt, no way to tell w/o dissassembly and looking at valves/jets -If fuel injected, injectors could be dirty or malfunctioning, are they old?
Q - does engine run smooth at any speed? If not, not all cylinders may be firing
2. Air - is air filter clean? Is there debris in air box?
3. Spark - does engine sound like all cylinders firing? If so, spark should be fine. But have you checked plugs recently? Changing all plugs, especially b/c V8, could really help Check for gap and corrossion/wear patterns to ascertain engine/cylinder running conditions. If you are unsure how to read plugs, then brush up on the subject (like I have to).
4. Vacuum - MOST OVERLOOKED ISSUE in general engine work, all engines require vacuum to run various valves and components, vacuum leaks are more easily tested using gauge, bought/borrowed or performed in shop.
Check all these things, maybe fuel filter, too.
Special note: there is a chance if you have run tank (or someone else did) to empty repeated times that debris from tank has built up in fuel pump's internal filter, which is before fuel line filter. Only by removing and inspecting pump can this be checked. Inspect all previously mentioned items, then check fuel pump. If all that doesn't work, then give me a terrible grade and repost and I'll try again...

Measure fuel pressure on injector rail - should be 38 to 40 psi. If low or fluctuating, then replace regulator. Another possibility is the in-tank filter being clogged - rare I know, but trash in the gas tank and it's clogged.
