22r improving performance
« on: Aug 24, 2005, 03:56:49 PM »
What are the best performance mods for an 86' 22R? Smog is not an issue.

I was thinking about the Offenhauser dual port manifold, Webber 033B, K&N filter, Tri-y header, and Cam.

Maybe an engbldr Performance RV head.

Let me know what you have done to your 22R that worked out well for good power.  :beerchug:

why does everybody thing the engine builder rv head is a performance head,  :smack:

38 weber+ stock intake+ oversize stainless valves and a .440 aka streetperformer cam from LC Engineering,  and you could get away with the stock valves even

with the weber and that cam you'll really feel a difference  :horseride: :driving:

ive never run a offy,  but ive heard from some that have run both and they said they fealt the stock 22intake did as good ,  so its just money spent you could spend elsewhere,

your most horsepower gain will be in the weber 38 and cam, 

i run a 32/36 weber and a 20R head and intake with a .460 lift stage II race cam from LC engineering on my 81 22 block,  befor i had it bored to 93.5 i was at 160+ Hp


with some good headers   1 1/2 primaries into 2 1/4 exhaust  you could get 140-150 HP easy

the engnbldr RV head is sort of a performance head, mainly because it's got bigger valves than stock.  their real performance model is the "street HO" head which is also ported out.

i've got an offy manifold that's about to go on the truck, the nice thing about them is that you can just get a 1/2" plastic spacer and you're good to run a weber -- it bolts directly on.  just need the spacer so the accelerator pump arm won't smack the manifold, also keeps the carb from heating up too much.  i'm never touching a redline 2 piece adapter again as long as i live.

I'm considering propane but doubt I will go with it since its not road legal.

I know some guys who have done 4.3L Vortec swap with real nice results. I am looking into that now.

For the time being, the good ol 22R will get me around.

I would KYOTA, but you must not live in CA. Here it aint road legal.
I want to drive this beast not trailer it.

Propane is much cheaper than swapping to a 4.3L vortec.

Check me if I'm wrong but don't you get a rebate or something on your registration in CA for using alternative fuels?

Not sure 8D3TOY, but I have heard something like that.

RustyToy, I am going to call someone on Monday and get this figured out. I need a completely road legal truck. If propane doesn't work out I will probably go GM 4.3L.
