Hey Nick, I was told a little while ago about the plenum problem on them rams. I have a 97 5.2 and have had the same problems 3 times not with the plenum. I replaced it everytime just for it to go out again. Hughes engine company makes a plenum kit for them trucks. It removes that old steel plenum pan and replaces it with a 1/4" thick aluminum pan. If you order both kits which is like $160 shipped it gives you all the gaskets you need and intake bolts because they can only be used once. I did it and it fixed it and runs great, I got all my power back too. Just something to look into also. Sorry did not get to you sooner unless you still have it apart.
