One problem all Magnum V6 and V8 engines suffer from is the intake plenum gasket. This testament to stupidity causes various issues, all resulting in poor performance. When you test it, pop the hood, grab a flashlight and open the throttle blades for a look-see. If the bottom of the intake (on the inside) is oily, you're already failing and it'll need to be replaced.
