is that hard to fix? ive thought about a throttle body too.. maybe next pay check. does the plenum gasket need to be replaced on all 2nd gen dodges or how do you tell if its bad?

it can be sometimes if you run into issues. to fix the plenum gasket you have to take the intake off because plenum gasket is on the bottom of the intake. the plenum gasket on all magnum engines usually need to be replaced after long enough time. they eventually start to leak. there are a couple theories why they start leaking there is one sure way to fix it.
here is a picture of the stock plenum pan with a blown gasket on it. you can ignore rust. intake came off a truck at the junkyard that had no throttle body.

hughes engines is the only place that i know of that sells a complete kit.
http://www.hughesengines.com/Index/p...p?partid=27091
you can also just buy the aluminum pan on ebay and buy all your own gaskets. i know some people don't like the gaskets that come with the hughes engines kit.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/DODGE-JEEP-A...622732&vxp=mtr
some people also recommend replacing the water pump, timing chain with a double roller timing chain and installing a tensioner. i don't know the best place to buy them but mopar part numbers are
P5007709 Timing chain tensioner
P5249267 Double roller chain and sprocket set

What else are you wanting to order? is the FI AIRGAP KIT worth 600 bucks? what all would you replace on a daily driver but also wanting to have good amounts of power for off roading every once and a while?

Im prolly never gonna sell this truck so thinkin even tho its my daily driver once i get a better job and make more money get a newer truck or car but keep this as a toy

i think 1.7 harland sharp roller rockers and bosche 4 hole injectors would be about the only other upgrade i would do to my engine. i have heard harland sharp roller rocker arms is the best bang for your buck as far as upgrades go.

not sure if the FI AIRGAP KIT is worth $600. i think with other upgrades it might help a bit but not as much as you think you get for $600
