Question about 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 Club Cab
No the intake manifold or plenum has nothing to do with the oil pressure of the lubrication system.
It may pay just to check the oil pressure sender unit it maybe faulty.
Also remove the oil filter and check that there is nothing blocking the relief valve in the oil filter head if it has a relief some models did and some didn't.
remove the relief valve clean and then recheck pressures.
Your torque settings for the inlet manifold are 12 ft.lb.
Oil pressure settings should be the following:
- At idle 6 psi
- At 3000rpm 30-80psi
Let me know if you need further information

If you have no oil pressure, then revving the engine is not a good thing.
I suspect that the oil pressure sending unit needs to be replaced so you don't get a false no oil pressure light or reading on your gauge.
Good luck to you.

The intake will have nothing to do with the oil pressure.
intake manifold tork specs are as listed
start in the midle of the intake and go across from each bolt
first tork to 15 ft lbs then to 20 ft lbs.
go back and forth start in the center and go out.
Now for the oil pressure,,,,,,,,,,,,,
I would get a mechanical guage and put that on the motor to check the oil pressure, Sounds like there is a bad oil cending unit or guage on the dash.Im thinking the oil cending unit is bad,
If this checks out ok and the guage and iol cender is ok then we need to look at main and rod bearings.
This is a long step and great deatale is needed to do
I would sugest a motor service manual you can get at the parts store for this step.
Let me know if i can help more!
