One of these days I'm going to Chang my head gaskets so I will probably redo the plenum since I'll buy the whole kit and it comes with the plenum too!

Here are my 710 injectors! I still need to rebuild them! That will come later though. I'm going to get some 703 injectors as well just to see what ones give it the best performance. 710 on the left and stock injectors on the right.

Awesome man. Any reason you're doing the head gaskets? it's a rarity that a Magnum motor blows a head gasket. I've got the new plenum plate and gaskets, new valve cover gaskets and a new rear main. O and timing cover gaskets. But I didnt touch the head gaskets cause I've never seen one blow lol. Just curious. Everything looks good though.

I was going to do them just to do it. Preventative maintenance. I didn't know that it was a rarity. I'm glad about that! In my old Jeep my timing chain messed up. Is that something I should worry about? Or it that a rarity too? Thanks man.

I only did my timing chain cause the timing cover gasket was leaking antifreeze. However the amount of slack in my chain at 162000 miles scared me. I think it should be routinely done every 200000 just because. But I've seen 300000 on magnums with factory chains in them. So it's up to u. If you're mechanically inclined I say go for it.

What does that consist of? Make sure everything is the same as when it came off?

You have to take off the alternator and move the a/c out of the way and take everything from in front of the motor. I took the radiator out to have more room. I did my water pump while I was there. Basically just going a bit further then water pump replacement. There's several write ups on here that helped me
