What brand 02 sensor did you use? General concensus is Bosch bad. NTK or Denso good for magnum engines.

You didn't say, but I assumed you replaced the upstream 02. What is the same code?

I doubt it has anything to do with the AEM intake. Get a haynes and a multi meter and check the IAT and ECT sensors as well. And yes, what is the code? And how are you clearing the code? with a scanner?

Your truck does have a magnum engine just so you know. Nothing special mind you. LOL

As far as the code # goes, I'm just curious as to what it is. And if you really want to clear codes and reset the pcm to reset it, disconnect the negative battery cable, turn on the headlights for a couple minutes. Turn the headlights off and reconnect the battery cable.
