76 Dart sport is on a distinguished road
Default 98 ram won't stay running

I have a 98 dodge ram it idled fine but would die when giving it gas, I have changed the plugs and cap and rotor,the timing chain because it had a lot of slack, the crankshaft position sensor, I checked the fuel pressure,and it has 50 psi at the fuel rail, and I did a compression test and it had between 125 and 137 psi in all cylinders, and the plugs keep coming out wet and stink like gas, but I get plenty of spark, please help, I know the old 318 but not these newer ones, thanks, Scott

Possibly O2 sensors.
Is it any different at startup (cold)? Does it do better or worse once warmed up?

I'd be looking at the intake plenum gasket.
