Block is back from the machine shop, now to wait for some bottom end parts to come in so I can start reassembly. I'd post some more pictures but photobucket doesn't allow it anymore  :-\

Okay have all bearings, new pistons (hypereutectic), connecting rods (forged chromoly h beam), and new crank in hand, just ordered a pro torquer cam from lce and adjustable cam gear, maybe next weekend I'll get to start the reassembly process

Crank, rods, pistons are in. Next weekend hopefully the head and timing stuff will go on

Decided to paint the block silver before reassembly, painted the valve cover and oil pan as well (thought the paint I got was more red, sometimes being colorblind is a bummer!), so that's like +10-15hp right?

Hey sassparilla_kid,

Wow… nice start to a rebuild.   :beerchug:

I’m very interested in following your project.   :yesnod:

Perhaps from a practical rather than aesthetics point of view, painting the block, rocker cover, and oil pan a light color is very smart.  After I painted mine black, I realized I screwed up.  I'm not saying you will have anything leaking when you are done with the assembly - but the light colors will simply allow you to see any potential leaks way easier.  To me seeing oil or coolant leaks on a black block or oil pan is very difficult, and I'd much rather find them on the block BEFORE discovering them on my driveway.  The lighter colors also make it easier to get the engine clean during degreasing and power washing.  :blah:

If I do another engine rebuild, I will paint light colors on engine and engine bay, including front frame rails.  :gap:

On the silver paint, I would give it a coat of clear.  Silver paint is heavy metal and has a more textured surface, the clear coat will help protect the paint and make it easier to clean… that’s just my experience.  :D

Hey :)bestgen4runner,

I think everyone has a different need and a different budget.

Some of us may not have a budget for premium priced parts – it doesn’t necessarily mean they are “cheap”.

If I “listened” to every expert on the forums I’ve frequented, I’d be often confused about which expert I should believe they know what they are talking about!

But… I get what your point is about some people who post their opinions on forums like this one.

sassparilla_kid,

I am very curious how that cam works in your rebuild.  I have compared it with other 22 cams in my DD.

Is there any particular thing that made you decide on that camshaft?

Thanks,

Gnarls.

I couldn't find any bad things mentioned about it online haha. I didn't want anything too crazy and at the same time wanted something that would make s noticeable difference. Also, got the adjustable cam gear so I can tweak things around a bit if I feel like it could use a little more power higher or lower in the rpm range

Found a little tiny bit of time today to work on the engine! Head kind of on, some timing stuff kind of on. Forgot I needed to clean up the rockers so I'll take them to work this week and do that, then I should be able to finish buttoning up the major junk that needs done. After the head's bolted down and timing cover on I think I might have to paint them the same as the block

Evidently I either wasn't paying attention or forgot where all of the timing cover bolts went and also what I did with them so I gotta order some more, here's how it sits now, head and timing chain/guides/cam on. Blingy blingy

Are you aware that there are two (2) bolts that will not get installed through the timing chain cover at the time you are bolting on the timing chain cover?

The one on the passenger side, if you have AC, for the AC bracket.  And, the one on the driver's side for the alternator adjuster bracket.

You should be using a thin blade screwdriver to measure every single bolt hole and corresponding bolt so you know exactly the depth that each bolt will go into the block.

I'm not inferring that you don't already know, but I'm just flashing back to the time I spent bolting on the t-chain cover.  :blah:

Was not aware, thanks for the heads up! Ordered a new set from lce (I'm not sure how complete my current set is, also they're covered in grease and grit I don't feel like cleaning), as well as oil pan bolts, intake manifold stud set, thermostat, and I feel like I'm forgetting something. If I'm lucky they'll make it by the weekend so I can button up the long block and start working on getting all of the other ancillary stuff ready to go

The top oil pump bolt is the one to watch out for.  You want the one in there that just makes it to the inside of the timing cover.  If it's too long it can bend the timing chain guide or contact the chain.

Starting to look like an engine! Still need to dial the cam timing in but the bottom end is all done! Curios if anybody else has used a crank scraper on their build and if so was there a noticeable difference?

Just curious.... why do you think you need a crank scaper? 

What do you think it will do?

What top RPMs do you plan to use in this engine?

It will make a difference. Maybe not one you will feel like a header or a cam.
almost all modern engines use them. It keeps the oil from hanging on the crank shaft counter weights.

A lot of it was curiosity and figured why not since it's all apart. A few semesters ago I took a class (I think it was international quality standards or something) and among the different quality improvement practices we learned about the Toyota  (ironic, huh) method kind of centered on the fact that it's easier to make 100 1% increases than it is to make a single 100% increase, so that's kind of my thoughts with this build. I'm hoping a lot of the smaller things add up (lighter hypereutectic pistons vs cast, lighter h-beam chromoly rods, crank scraper, etc), but in case they don't it still has a better cam and is gonna get some headers too

Interesting...

Gnarls.

What power, RPM range, peak torque and peak HP are you designing this build for?

If you are running in Fresno, CA, and averaging a 300 foot elevation, your engine will feel good about that.

I agree, and I have experienced, that very small changes can be “felt” by your butt dyno.  Those small changes in performance have been most noticeable in my 22R.  Performance-seeking changes in my 22RE’s have not been as noticeable. 

I believe H8PVMNT has clearly demonstrated that very small changes in a carb’d engine can be significant.

Crankshaft scrapers are relatively inexpensive, however, I don’t believe a SuperFlo 902S engine dyno would record the change in torque in a stock 22RE, however it might record the difference between 5w-20 vs 20w-50.  Scrapers also are known to be more tricky to seal up.  Regarding lubricity issues, I have not read about any serious problems with a 22 in typical 4-wheeling activities.

When it comes to changes in a 22RE, first, MammaECU will control and limit many changes, including AFR.  The stock 22RE injectors will limit AF.  Volumetric Efficiency are THE two big words when it comes to engine performance and power… so intake, head, cam, and exhaust is most often the main focus.

If you are wanting to tweak and tune for incremental power, and I’m a big fan of getting the most out of our little engines, there are known factors to help.  Super tuning a 22RE and all its sensors is very important. Beyond that,  motor oil and gear oil viscosity can be parasitic, along with other engine components that induce drag– NASCAR engines typically run 0w motor oil and electric water pumps, for example.

That’s just my very limited experience with Toyota 22s.  :gap:
