Here we are 60 pages in on a rebuild of a 22re
I just have to do it. I cant help myself gnarls.
Well that conversion or swap seems pretty popular. I think I can find lots of threads with lots of issues doing that swap. Is it a good swap? Yeah.
I'm trying to keep my truck as original as reasonable. Since my first 1986 Long Bed with a 22RE that I bought in 1986 ran so well, I'd like to get this truck and engine rebuilt with some minor to moderate enhancements to keep the truck as stock as possible. It is in such incredibly good condition for a 33 year old Toyota truck. If I were to actually do a complete engine swap, it would be to a V-8 (LS). Gaining 40 HP with 3RZ engine just isn't worth the swap for me. And with a 3RZ I don't know if I could do my own maintenance on it?
That's just think'n right now. Things can always change.
