Mine only has 86xxx miles and it is weaker than any v6 full size truck I have had , the 5.2 is a weak a$$ motor and after 2 weeks of owning my 2001 In hate it with a passion . Bought it to pull my horse trailer and it does was worse than the 99 4Runner . But hey I do average 16mpg with the 5.2 non trailer pulling

also check your throttle linkage, they often stretch and your TB will only be open halfway when your foot's on the floor making it seem like a loss of power, oh and don't use autolite spark plugs- i lost a bit of power and mileage when i put a "free set" in. stay oe Champion or i've heard ngk's are good in the magnums

my 98 has 259,000 on it, im not afraid to drive it and ill tell ya the thing that dissapoints me most is the lack of passing power the 5.2L was really only known for the stump pulling torque for the bit of a smaller motor lol. my truck is a bit the same way it scoots allright on the road but seems to be upshifting and passing that is its weakness.
