Default Plenum purchase question

ok. About to install a new hughes plenum kit. Is this the right one ?

I will not be doing anything else but this in a month. Is there anything missing from the kit that I need?

Yeah, the truth is missing. Fel-Pro gaskets will fix the problem. Outside of that, it seems to have all the parts minus new coolant.

My ram had a blown fel-pro plenum gasket. Installed by the dealer.

ccd1977,

Get the hughes kit and make sure you have a in-lbs torque wrench for reassembly.

That most certainly is an original factory gasket and not the redesigned metal gasket. You can believe me when I tell you I've changed enough of them to know.
