Decisions decisions, 22r or 22re?
This is not asking what is better. This is asking you, yotatech, what would you do in my situation? I have an 82 longbed, my plans are 33 or 35s, slight (3"), lift rear locker and of course, armor. I currently have a running 22r but it needs rebuilt, my plans for that were to rebuild it with power in mind (cam, fresh rebuild, full head job, intake, and 32/36 weber.) I have recently come across a 22re, 62000 original miles. My question is to you, would you swap in the 22re or rebuild the 22r? I'm not a "hardcore" off roader nor will this truck be a dd. If I did do the swap, maybe a turbo would be in the future, as I am a diesel mechanic and I know FI/turbo much better than I know a carb setup, but a carb setup with a slight bore and some performance mods is much easier to make work. I'm not looking for a race truck, just looking for a little more hp. What would you do?
