Yes there is a ign advance wire that needs to be jumped.

Google it.
I have it in my manual at work.

The easy way to time thoes 22r is to advance it, load it up. ( foot on gas and brake) listen for a knocking sound, then back off the timing.

I assume it's stock, no crazy cam.

You know, I can't remember the last time I didn't time my 22RE with anything else but my ear.

How long ago did you get 450 per tank? Have you noticed any drop off in power since you got the 450 per tank? Do you have 35" or bigger tires on it? Changed your ring gear? Have you checked your tire pressure lately? There's so many things it could be.

i love this thread. trying to get stock fuel milage on a non stock vehicle so you can save some money, and to do this, it sounds like your changing out parts until you get the magic fuel economy number you want.

Well that's the answer to your question right there. The difference of spinning 2 tires instead of 1. Also bigger than stock tires.

when were you getting over 400 a tank and did it slowly move to the 300 your at now or was it fairly rapidly?

have you tested the o2 sensor?

It's probably just the gas out here, it sucks. My cousin came down from Edmonton with a couple fuel cells full of premium. Filled up my runner, and it ran way better and got way better fuel mileage. Our gas has been on a steady decline in quality for a couple years, even if you go and fill up across the line, you would probably notice a huge difference. Go fill up across the line with premium before you start putting more parts in it, also when was the last time you made a long highway drive (like 500+ kilometers), sometimes a vehicle just needs to burn off all the shit it collects from daily driving around town.

Well i got 400 with the 33s before should be able to do it again how do i test the o2 sensor? And now i have to do the head gasket its developed a small leak into the cooling system. Are they easy ones to do? Probs fona shave the head wile i got it off!!!

Not a big deal if you google it there's a wedge you make to wedge tensioner and chain and get the head pressure checked
If it is leaking comp loss of power will in increase fuel consumption
what makes you think headgaskets leaking white smoke
or Blowing coolant out overflow on rad
mine was a coolant leak under the intake would have been a simple gasket
But truck was pretty beat by that time

Thinking like that will make any man go mad.

As far as the head gasket. Depends on if it's the stock exhaust manifold and you may have the hot air returns going around the back of the head, makes for some fun getting the intake manifold off. I've had the head off in like 1.5 hours max. Whole engine out in less than 4. The beauty with the 22re is you have tons of space to work with.

If you need a head, let me know I have a rebuilt one here ready to drop on, cam included. $150.

What, it's rebuilt. valve seals, valve grind, valve springs, resurfaced, cam shaft. I thought $150 seemed fair, couldn't do all that work for even close to that price.
