Question about Cars & Trucks
Not many ways to tell without taking the engine apart.
There should be signs of new gaskets and shiny clean metal.
A brand new engine is not really possible since Dodge probably stopped making them a few years ago. Most times you get a rebuilt engine from Dodge or any number of rebuilders from around the country.
As long as you got a warranty that covers 2 or 3 years and several thousand miles, you are as safe as you can be. The warranty from most major companies and the dealer would be good across the country, not just the shop that did the install.

Remove dipstick, exhaust pipe, left engine to transmission mount, loosen motor mounts & raise engine slightly.(enough to slide pan back out, when ready.) Heard enough yet? Good Luck.

Assuming you have made sure your oil level is full, I would replace the oil pressure sending unit. The sending unit is located right next to the oil filter on the lower left side of the engine. If I recall it's right on the filter attachment housing. You'll see the sending wire attached to it.
That is the fastest, cheapest and most likely solution.

Sounds to me like the Throttle Position Sensor. Thats usually what makes the throttle "rev" But that is not going to make the oil pressure drop. Pull the codes from your car and look them up online. sometimes there is an extra fuse u can add to your panel and turn the key on and it will flash your codes via the check engine light. i.e. if the light flashes 2 times then small pause then 1 time and long pause that is code 21. if there isnt a extra fuse you can usually jump it with a paperclip and pull the codes. not really sure how to do that with yours. but im positive Google knows ;)
