I'm getting ready to do a tune up on my Dodge since it doesn't have any power and bad mileage. Plus, i haven't did a tune up ever since i had the truck. I did some odds and ends but that's about it.
114,400 miles on the Dodge.
I have some stuff picked out for what i want to use and i need some opinions. I know everyone is going to have different opinions because you guys' might of used different things, but i just want to know how this setup is or if there is anything else i need to buy.
I already sent some of you a message asking about stuff but i got alot of different opinions and figured I'd just start a thread. I also read alot of the polls and searched around a bit before posting this.
I'm just going to copy and paste the name of the parts or links of the items I am ordering from Rockauto and Summit.
CLOYES Part # C3028X Incl. Cam Sprocket; Double Roller Chain; Heavy Duty Timing Set
Do i need anything else, do i not need something i posted, or do i need to swap something out? I'm trying to get a list together of what to order here in the beginning of June so i can make my truck run like new again. I would like to keep my ordering list from Rockauto and Summit if i could.

What you are describing is fairly major maintenance. Since you are planning to swap the timing chain set, might want to look into adding a timing chain tensioner (MOPAR Performance part# P5007709). In addition, take a good look at your water pump to ensure it's in good shape and not leaking out of the weep hole. Since the front cover is coming off, great time to check the water pump closely.
