I also just bought a 99 Ram 5.2l 5spd with 125k miles. It ran fairly well up to 3000rpm, then "bogged" down as if it had a governor on it. It would barely hold 65mph! After studying this forum I learned about the intake plenum issue, which allows oil to be sucked into the intake. If not corrected this leads to a plugged catalytic converter. So I bought the Hughes kit and a new cat, and after about 10 hours labor my truck runs SOOOOO much better. With 200k on your truck you either have the problem or its been fixed.
