I will say that it makes me feel better knowing I'm not the only one running higher temps. I still don't think 200+ is ideal for a 22re though.

I've been daily driving a 22R (stock engine/radiator) for almost 10 years. It runs a constant 180-185. A couple years after I got it I blew a head gasket. I new something was wrong when the temp hit 190, sure enough blown head gasket. The temp is always so consistent that I new right away something was up when it hit 190.

Ted at Engnbldr says "190-200 is normal for a 22re, above 215 is dangerous."

LC Engineering told me "205+ is head gasket territory".

Jerry at 22reperformance  said "190-192 is the safe range"

Plenty of people on this forum saying their 22re's run between 180-190 under all conditions.

At this point I'm done babying it, I'm just going to drive it.  Thanks for the boost of confidence guys  :thumbs:

I'm just grateful it wasn't worse.
The tent had a metal tube frame.  one of the tubes landed on the sun roof and crushed the roof in a couple inches, where the tube hit it. I can't believe the sunroof and windshield didn't break. A lot of the damage to the roof popped out when I got the tent off. Hopefully I will have some luck popping out the rest.

I remember hearing somewhere that you can use boiling water to pop dents. I have my doubts but I may give that a try when the weather warms up.

I've never been to Tahuya. Unfortunately I cant make this one. Hopefully I can make a run with you guys in the spring.

Well, it looks like most of my build thread has fallen victim to Photo Phucket. Trying to get the pics back up should be fun.


The truck idles rough when the headlights or heater are on.  In an attempt to reduce resistance in the wiring, I replaced all my battery cables and grounds. I used 2 gauge welding cable, tinned ring terminals and marine shrink tube.

Trying some LED brake/tail lights and front marker lights.  I really want a set of the Truck Lite LED headlights.

This is where I am now.
I did have one success, Got the VSS hooked up, so no more VSS code. The brake signal to ECU has never been hooked up, I don't get a code without it. I'm not sure if there is any reason to hook it up but I may give it a try.

I am wanting to up the ALT B+ charge wire to 6 gauge.

I'm thinking my charging system could be wired better than it is. Most of what I am reading says I should run the "sense" wire up closer to the battery. It is currently tapped into the B+ charge wire, about two feet from the ALT.

This is how things are wired now.




Based on what I've read, I'm thinking something like this may be better.

I could really use some suggestions and reassurance here, I don't want to burn up my truck.

I would definitely recommend upgrading the alternator to battery lead. After years of heavy service they start to collect corrosion between the strands of copper. 6 gauge should be plenty. I would recommend having a fuse between the battery and everything that isn't the starter. For your sensing wire put it after the fuse.

Thanks for the input helipilot.  I definitely want to get everything fused. None of the main power wires where fused when the EFI swap was done and The truck almost burned over it.  I added this gutted fuse box from a 2nd gen truck, in an attempt to get the main power wires fused. I am learning this electrical stuff as I go.




So you're saying to hook up the sense wire after the fuse, down stream of the battery, like this ?




I know this is pretty basic stuff but I'm really struggling to understand the best way to set this up.

This is another idea I had, using fusible links and a power junction.
