I agree we should explore the unknown, but also share what we learn from it. I fell down the 22re rabbit hole long ago. You're still an adjustable cam gear, bored throttle body and supra AFM behind where I was when I finally realized it is what it is. I only mentioned WOT because (on a 22re)it's the top end that suffers most from added air mods(big bores, big valves). The closer you get to WOT, the further you get from the pre-programmed fuel parameters. I hope you get your motor running to your satisfaction, I just thought I'd add some lessons learned to anyone reading this who's thinking about jumping into  the hole with us.

All information shared is a good thing.

I'm beyond the theoretical "it will work" and the theoretical "it won't work", I'm just trying to verify what "does work" for myself.

It's definitely appears to be a rabbit hole.

1986 XtraCab SR5 22RE 5speed W56B, ~26,000 MI after break-in, DIM (Did It Myself) rebuilt engine - .020" over, engnbldr RV head, OS valves, 261C cam, DT Header.
