What's going on?

No, neither will cure the problems, whatever they are.

I see you've checked fuel pressure but what about volume? You need to get the DLC repaired so you can check codes and view the data stream.

I have a 2001 RAM 1500 with a 5.9 with severe problems...
# 1 is no speedo... have changed both sensors and head with no results...
# 2 is when I try to accelerate using passing gear it falls on it's face, my fuel rail reads 49 to 51 pounds running, I don't believe it's a fuel problem it has to be electronic,first I tried changing the throttle position sensor and then the Manifold absolute pressure sensor still no luck... I am unable to read my pcm as the port has been broken and I'm quite sure the pins aren't in the spot they should be... It was taped up under the dash when we found it...
so tell me where do I go from here? Please don't tell me the DEALER!

When you say you changed teh head, are you talking about the instrument cluster?

Yes as far as the speedometer goes and it did the same thing as the last one. Everything else works fine in the speedo head..oil pressure, rpm's, etc etc...

Try this and see what happens...

The instrument cluster actuator test will put the instrument cluster into its self-diagnostic mode. In this mode the instrument cluster can perform a self-diagnostic test that will confirm that the instrument cluster circuitry, the gauges, and the CCD data bus message-controlled indicators are capable of operating as designed. During the actuator test the instrument cluster circuitry position each of the gauge needles at various calibration points, illuminate each of the segments in the Vacuum-Fluorescent Display (VFD), and turn all of the CCD data bus message-controlled indicators on and off.

Successful completion of the actuator test will confirm that the instrument cluster is operational. However, there may still be a problem with the CCD data bus, the Powertrain Control Module (PCM), the Engine Control Module (ECM), the Airbag Control Module (ACM), the Controller Anti-lock Brake (CAB), or the inputs to one of these electronic control modules. Use a DRBIII® scan tool to diagnose these components. Refer to the appropriate diagnostic information.
  1. Begin the test with the ignition switch in the Off position.
  2. Depress the odometer/trip odometer switch button.
  3. While still holding the odometer/trip odometer switch button depressed, turn the ignition switch to the On position, but do not start the engine.
  4. Keep the odometer/trip odometer switch button depressed for about ten seconds, until CHEC appears in the odometer display, then release the odometer/trip odometer switch button.
  5. A series of three-digit numeric failure messages may appear in the odometer display, depending upon the failure mode. If a failure message appears, refer to the Instrument Cluster Failure Message chart for the description and proper correction. If no failure message appears, the actuator test will proceed.

Time to start digging into the wiring and the PCM since the speedo signal is sent from there. Wiring between the sensors and PCM could also be the cause.
