When I installed a catchcan on my used Dodge Magnum with the 5.7, I found an increadibly dirty throttle body and oil puddled in the intake manifold. Some of the oil vapor will condense in the intake manifold over time and accumulate in puddles if there are any crevices in there. At the time I used a rag to get what I could, careful to not leave ANYTHING in there to get sucked into the engine (parts of the rag or even lint off a low quality rag). There was no way for me to do a good cleaning job without removing the intake manifold, which was more work than I was willing to do. With my Ram I put the catchcan on the day I took it home and when I recently installed Moes 85mm throttle body my original TB was spotless and so was the intake manifold. Pooling oil was my experience with my 2006 Magnum with the 5.7 Hemi, maybe the Ram is different...
