Got headers,exhaust, CAI on the list. Would like a mild cam and a tuner! And gonna lower it not too low though. What is a good cam and what else do I need with the cam? And will 3rd gen 20" rims fit my truck? 1995 rcsb 1500 2wd 5.9l

Your truck is OBDI, so cross a tuner off your list.

So there is nothing I can do to the PCM if I am gonna do the cam headers and exhaust and CAI?? I don't want to invest and not be able to manage the power. Can I just cut the cats off and what about the o2 sensors?

Stay .480 or under as thats the max the stock valve-springs can handle, stay in the 112 -114 range. I am more partial to Cranes Cams as they made them for Mopar performance for our motors.

Not to sure what you had done to your neck, but I have C5-C7 fuzed. I hope you are doing well!

It should have the EGR yes. So M1 with EGR part number is P5007398AB and install kit part number P5007638.

As for injector's good chance you will have to up size but not by much, I went with Accel injectors and they have not let me down yet. For your year truck 39psi is what the fuel psi runs at. The stock fuel rails will work just fine but if you are looking for bling and plan on upgrading the fuel system at some point then look at these, Dodge Dakota 5 2 5 9 Fuel Rails Sold as A Pair RMR 056 Assy | eBay

A wide-band 02 gauge should be on your list as well.
