i found this online

The cylinder heads used in the 1994 and 1995 model year (MY) V10 applications were c/n 53005854. The intake port is the area where we want to focus our attention. Look at Figure 1 and examine the upper portion of the port as indicated by the red circle. As you can see there is a very minor clearance relief for the intake manifold-mounted fuel injectors. However, with this cylinder head, it is impossible to remove or install the intake manifold without removing all of the injectors. This obviously was not the plan when it came to servicing this engine.

In MY 1996, the cylinder head kept that same casting number without any suffix or prefix, however a change was made in the top of the intake port (see Figure 2) to allow intake removal and installation without having to remove all of the injectors. Based upon the number of calls that I've received from engine builders not being able to reinstall the intake manifold after changing cylinder heads I thought it prudent to let everyone know about that change. This change is almost unnoticeable at first until you lay the heads side by side (see Figure 3). Many of the facilities that I have spoken with are taking the Ram by the horns, so to speak, to eliminate part of this frustration. They are using dye and scribing the port relief shape at the top of the port. They then remove the material at the top of the port of the 1994-'95 cylinder heads so that they match the 1996-later head. By doing this they now have only one cylinder head part number that will allow assembly of the intake manifold assembly (with injectors) without the installer becoming frustrated.
