Long story short: a customer at work has a 1998 Dakota with the 5.2L Magnum Eight; guess what, we can't locate a replacement intake manifold, either OEM or aftermarket.

Are those 1992-03 'beer barrels' already obsolete? :frusty:

Hughes Engines has some slightly modified ones, but you should be able to find them in a salvage yard, and if it is only slightly damaged, aluminum can be TIG welded, heck, even JB Weld will make repairs.

OK: I did some poking around here in the 'net and; apparently, new replacement manifolds are available for the 1992-03 Magnum V8's but they are not the beer barrel style. If anything; they are essentially 'Ols School' looking high rise castings with a short cast in spacer for the throttle body as well as the 8 bungs fo the OEM Mopar injectors.
