Default plenum gasket

I was looking thru the post and saw a thread on plenum gasket replacement and sounds like what I need. But I also get pinging from the rockers only after the truck is up to tenp. would the plenum gasket help the pinging? the truck is a 2000 5.2 with 116000 miles.
thanks for any help

I'm not sure what you mean, since rockers can't cause a ping. I would suggest replacing the plenum pan gasket if you're sure it needs it and go from there.

I just ordered my kit from hughes engines because if you only replace the gasket on the plenum it will not last very long at all.
