The 22r needs to be a certain year model before the e.f.i. will bolt up to the head. If you 22r in your truck is a 82 then your out of luck on using that engine. You can switch the head with celica e.f.i. head they were e.f.i. in 83. Other then that the wiring won't be that hard. Just get you a e.w.d. I wanted to the same thing had a 93 cab and e.f.i. set up but a 82 engine. I'm just going to order the propane kit from gotpropane and run propane.

Thanks for the info! That definatley helps out! How does propane work? Does it work just as good or better than e.f.i?

Propane works by using a gas instead of liquid. Basically you could run at any angle and not stall out. Propane is better than carb for sure. E.F.I. runs a close race with propane but e.f.i. still has it's limits. There is a thread on that discussion propane vs e.f.i.

The draw back I see to propane is that it stinks.  It doesn't bother some people, but it gives me a headache.  Also, every truck I have ever driven that had a gas motor converted to propane had less power on propane.  I know that things can be done to the engine to get the power back up, but all that cost money.  If your vehicle is street driven I would reccomend EFI.  Your best bet would be to find a wrecked donor truck with a good engine.  I also remember seeing a kit that used the VW fuel injection  it looked cool.  i am pretty sure it is a bosch system and pretty reliable too.  Probably pricey though.

I found a link.  Not all that bad of a price considering.
