I'm getting a non turbo (and everything that goes with it) and rebuilding it as a non turbo. The turbo engines suck, terrible mileage, unreliable, gutless, and a nuisance to work on, so I'm ditching the turbo engine and going with a non turbo because a naturally aspirated 22re with a ported head and mild cam makes more power than a factory turbo engine and is easier to work on, more reliable, and should get better mileage (my turbo gets 15mpg on flat highway going it's top speed of 55)
Hey guys I have an '86 turbo (22rte) pickup that's been giving me problems pretty much the entire time I've had it ....
What are you going to do with your 22RTE?Gnarls.
In my build, I went from a 22RTE to 22RE just as you are. And you might find some useful info. You will need the top half of the AFM, and you can reuse the whole intake (which will help with the underhood sticker for the vacuum lines for a visual inspection) and harness. Will need ECM, injectors, air intake from AFM to TPS, and exhaust. While you are in there, replace all the hoses, vacuum lines, fuel filter, and get the longer exhaust studs.
It's an automatic isn't it? I've driven an 86 Turbo 4Runner and it was automatic, rather trash I might add...Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
The one I drove needed a full rebuild, that explains why it was not great. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
The 22re platform isn't worth the money. It's a maxed out motor.Sure you can buy a racing 22re with 130hp for $4,000But you can swap, a better engine in for that price, TDI diesel or 5vze are great options. Better power and mpg and I think the VW can be smog passed!Best of luck but I think your making a mistake with your money.Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
If you are swapping, other than a Toyota engine, and doing a complete conversion, the best bang for your buck is Chevy 4.3L V-6 Vortec.That just my opinion - it may be worthless.Gnarls.
So far I am super happy with my TDI swapped truck everything on the swap was simple. And I think total I have less then 2,000$ into it.Did my first parking lot test this week and it had major power so exited to take it down the road soon.The 4.3 is a good engine but diesel is better mpg and power output. The TDI can get 250hp with bolt ons and that's huge from the 100hp stock.I did it because it was a direct replacement for the 22re meaning to had the same hp stock as the 22re. Plus the car I pulled it from got 40mpg so that's triple the 22re mileage.Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Toyota never made the 4runner you speak of. Only 86-87 IFS for 4runner w/turbo (gas) Maybe outside the US but I doubt it
taken from wiki Thus, the first generation is nearly mechanically identical to the Toyota Hilux. All first generation 4Runners had two doors and were indistinguishable from the pickups from the dashboard forward. Nearly all changes were to the latter half of the body; in fact, because the rear springs were not upgraded to bear the additional weight from the rear seats and fiberglass top, these early models tended to suffer from a sagging rear suspension.In North America, they were sold from the 1984½ model year from May 1984. For this first year (March to July 1984 production), all models were equipped with black or white fiberglass tops. An SR5 trim package was offered that upgraded the interior: additional gauges, better fabrics, and a rear seat were standard with the package. All 1984 models were equipped with the carbureted 2.4 L 22R engine and were all available with a four-wheel-drive system that drove the front wheels through a solid front axle.1985 (August 1984 production) saw the arrival of the electronically fuel-injected 2.4 L 22R-E also called 22R-EC I4 engine. This upped the horsepower numbers from 100 hp for the 22R, to 116 hp for the 22R-E Engine, though the carbureted engine remained available until 1988. Additionally, rear seats were available in all 1985 4Runner trim levels, not just the more upscale SR5. 1986–1989 Toyota 4Runner SR5 In 1986, the Surf/4Runner underwent a major front suspension design change as it was changed from a solid front axle to the Hi-Trac independent front suspension. Track width was also increased by three inches. These changes made the trucks more comfortable on-road, and improved stability and handling. The new suspension also increased the space in the engine compartment (necessary to fit larger engines, such as the V6 introduced in 1987) but arguably decreased the truck's off-road capabilities. The North American specification Toyota Pickup also adopted this new suspension, but the regular Hilux for other markets at this point retained the more rugged and capable, if less refined, solid axle configuration. With the 1986 update, the Surf/4Runner grille changed from the three segment type to the two segment grille. Tops were color-matched on blue, red and some gold models, while other body colors were still sold with black or white tops.A turbocharged version of the 22R-E engine (the 22R-TE) was also introduced in 1986, although this engine is significantly rarer than the base 22R-E. It appears that all turbocharged 4Runner models sold in the US were equipped with an automatic transmission, though a five-speed manual could still be ordered in the turbocharged pickups. Most turbocharged 4Runners were equipped with the SR5 package, and all turbo trucks had as standard a heavier rear differential later used in the V6 model. Low-option models had a small light in the gauge cluster to indicate turbo boost, while more plush vehicles were equipped with an all-digital gauge cluster that included a boost gauge. Turbocharged and naturally aspirated diesel engines were also available in the pickups at this time as well, but it appears that no diesel-powered 4Runners were imported to the United States.
