so as some of you may know i own an 82 yota with the stock 22r
and just like any other toyota i run into prolems sporadically nd at the worst times
so i was just wondering if anybody has done a efi conversion on a 22r....
if so how hard is it to install nd is there someone willing to do it in the future
if its not worth it or wut ever the case may be what would my other nd best option be for more power nd reliability:dontknow:
thanks yall
cheers

downey has a full kit to convert to a 350,no smashing at all,im thinkin about doing it myself,kit costs around 1100$ for everything,then you just have to get the motor/trans,adapter kit allows the chev trans to hook up to the toy trasfercase[cheers]

BEST BET WOULD BE putting a 22re in there. No point of changeing the 22r to EFI since thats alot more work in a swap.

22re swap is fairly easy ... I have done quite a few now .

on the earlier units , I think the best , and most inexpencive swap is it earlier 84EFI .. a celica engine (with some mods) is perfect .. or a 2WD is perfect as well .. this way , you dont have to worry about the speed sensor .

Take a wander into your bathroom, Put right foot on scale, if it weighs more that 7 LBS add a grand for a narrowed 9" for the rear.

naa u dont need the 9" for the rear end, your stock one is just as strong.. im doing a 351w in mine so its the same kit so to say.. the only adapter im gonna be buying is to swap my toy t case to my ford 4sp.. besides that adapter that is like 300$plus.. u can even buy the bolt on engine mounts that are like 100$... i head the stock t case is plenty for a v8 also but as for the stock 5sp thats kinda iffy...

nvr2hi replace's ring and pinion's once a month on average shit stick and drives it only on the weekends [wako] ...


if ur easy on it u can get a while but ur toy diff's are only good for ur 4 cyl ...

and that's mostly in mud witch is forgiving more than half the toy's @ mcc grenaded r&p's most with only 100 lbs torque :dontknow:

hmm:confused0006: i know a few guys who run stout 350s and have never had problems with their diffs,you have to remember that a toyota axle is just about the same size as a 3/4chev axle,and it would depent on your gear ratio to shatter your r/p,but your best bet is just to gear and tweek your 22r[cheers]

I've got a built 22r,(stroked). It is not the fastest thing on the road, but it gets me home. The 5.0l is the easiest V8 swap (dist. in front) but adds weight. A toyota or VW diesel is good for torque, Rx7 is good for rpm.. I'am considering a 3.4l swap. My 97 4runner has one and I think they are a good strong engine. What about a 20/22r or 20/22re combo ? :confused0006:

v6 thirds are your only hope if you wanna run a v8. Longs up front and you'll be fine.
