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.

Here is the link to the Hughes Plenum Replacement.

http://www.hughesengines.com/Index/p...4&partid=26190

While the engine is apart a new 180 thermostat would be good as well as doing the distributor cap and rotor while the intake is off. Plus new plugs and wires.

Its a very solid product, I installed it on mine about maybe 4k or 5k miles ago and the plenum pan is still shiny aluminum when I look down the intake.
