I had a 89 4runnner i used to rev the piss out of every day, I bought it with 330 000kms for $600 and just wanted it for its tanny, t-case and rear axle i was going to put in my samurai. soooo the day i got it i took it out with a friend and his rig, and we planed to just rat bag it and tow it home i dont think it came below 3500 rmp, iI was doing 120km/hr in 3rd for km after km on the old dirt roads. It freakin blew my mind it just would not die. so I used it as my daily driver for the next year without a single hicup, thats what first turned me onto toyota. Long live the 22RE

My 22re Just crossed 200k miles and mine see's 3k-4k daily and Can get mine to 5,500k and it doesn't like struggle to get there either.... I got it topped out and it does 120-125mph when you calculate the rpm's.

I do however sit about .5'' lower than stock and have a camper shell, and stock sized tires. 5 speed of course. It does have a cold air intake system, lc engineering headers, pacesetter full exhaust. with the ability to get to 5,500 rmp I can hit 60 in second gear, I don't do it often for obvious reasons.

Mines not a 22re but i've taken it to 7,000 rpms many times. I know have a rev limiter for the new engine I am building. New engine with have all ARP bolts. I'm hoping to to turn 6,500 rpms safely.
