I am not no professional just trying to make my truck run better. I just bought AMS racing MDS Delete and tuner kit that come
with the Mopar lifters. I’m overthinking what other parts I need to buy. Do I need to get the Melling Oil pump, new timing chain, new Valves , and new push rods? I just want to do it right. I don’t know what else I need to buy plus I’m over thinking it to the max. I will be attempting to do it myself with zero experience because I don’t have the money to afford the labor. The only experience is just changing parts here and there plus reading a lot of info. I’m just planning on replacing all gaskets plus clean. I don’t know what to expect at all.

The truck has 267,000 miles on it with the tick, misfire on cylinder 1&7 If I remember correctly.Im leaking coolant somewhere but idk where. I change the oil every month and I don’t see no coolant in the oil when changing it. No coolant coming out from the exhaust or in the coolant reservoir.The engine is rebuilt with a new block and so far only put 11,000 miles on it.

I am open to recommendations and opened minded on feed back.

I meant to say Oil in the coolant reservoir.

If I had the option to barter this out with a mechanic I would if I could.

This generation of ram not known to have lifter/cam issues like the newer trucks not common at all you may be hearing a exhaust leak Upload a vid of it running if you can. Do a compression check first then check your coils spark plugs and injectors that is alot of miles on a engine If it is not something simple you are better off doing a engines swap with a used motor.

Yeah I have coolant leaking into the oil right now , but into my coolant system yet. Just found out I don’t have a MDS for this year of truck. Idek know if it does because this is a different block and not the original.

I just looked it up, it is confusing for sure

Chrysler's Multi-Displacement System (MDS) is an automobile engine variable displacement technology. It debuted in 2005 on the 5.7 L modern Hemi V8.

HEMI HISTORY, it disputes the statement above

What year did Hemis have MDS?

2005

These systems are functionally similar with similar components and operation, but since much has already been written on the LS, the Hemi MDS is the focus here. If you've got a Hemi-powered 2005-up LX/LC-platform car (Chrysler 300c, Dodge Charger, Magnum, or Challenger), you've most likely got the fuel-saving MDS. May 13, 2020

Tuning Company suggests upgrades to keep your HEMI alive

Exactly, you would not have MDS, if the engine was Stock
just like HemiLonestar wrote

Unless ........

You will have to look at the Serial Number on the engine block
That number usually lets you know the Year that the engine was made
