1982 22r motor swap to a 2.7 tacoma motor
« on: Apr 02, 2007, 05:04:35 PM »
Hi i have an 1982 4x4 pick up. I was looking to get more power out of this truck but i want to stay with toyota. I heard that the 2.7 tacoma motor have the same HP as the 3.0 and are dang near bulletproof. I would like to swap the 2.7 for my 22r. If anyone out there has done this swap or has researched it i would apprciate any info so i could see what im going to be up against. Thank You

Look at the top of the forum page right above your post is the official 3RZ knowledge thread, start there.

i have the same truck and want to do the same thing.  i was thinking 22re or 22ret with a cam and headers but i think a 3rz sounds WAY better with 150 naturally aspirated horsepower and an even sturdier design (if thats possible?)
plus the ODB-II computer system the 3rz has is awesome!
plus its a fawkin toyota motor. what could be better? no god damn domestic gas guzzling heap of metal. nah im only joking. the only thing i love more than a built toyota is a full blown american hot rod. oooooh baby. i was torn between building a 4x4 or a street rod.

I want to do a motor swap this fall, but my parents dont want me to. can ya blame em tho??? we DO have a 2 car garage though....its very frustrating. i cannot convince them! oh well...i dont have the money anyways!

when you are 18, you can move out and do it yourself, probably get a job too ;)



im really lucky, my parents are pissed about my truck hogging the garage, but hey, its their house and its in their garage and i live here.... im 25..... err in a couple weeks

I have a job..but right now Im only working 2 days a week which is enough for gas and some food.
Living where I do, I wont be able to live by myself in a place where there is a garage I can actually use for a LONG time.  Living is extremely expensive in sonoma county. I live in "wine country" so I guess thats why it costs so much to live here.  I dont even like wine? Neither does my family. 
Anyways I want to move out of california. Its not for me. I think if I get my hands on a 3rz Id be able to do it. I grew up working on cars with my dad..he always helps me with my truck.  He would support me and help me out a lot with all of it.
