I have the TRD Level 1 cam in mine, seems to work well and is CA smog legal, although I don't know how they could check for that (it does have a CARB Executive Order sticker):

I think it all depends on where you would like the motor to make power low mid and high

Well my wife and I are deciding wether to put a 302 ho out of my wrecked mustang in or have the 22re rebuilt.We live in the mountains and climb over 1000 ft to get to work and would like to be able to climb the hill with decent power.We take it mudding and on moderate trails once in awhile so it would have to work all around.Which would be cheaper,stick my 302 in or rebuild the 22re and get cam and a new header?

it will be cheaper to have the 22re rebuilt.... a 302 will not jsut drop in, it will take some time, extensive fabrication skills and $... also putting a 302 into your truck will not be emissions legal...

I am already smogged and I know I have to replace the headers,radiator,and get a new bellhousing and stuff for the tranny and beef up the front suspension with better torsion bars but what else is there to modify?

You can get the 302 to pass emissions all day long if you are looking into a 5.0 out of a mustang it would be easy. you pretty much have it coverd on what you need to modify

being already smogged doesnt mean anything.. your truck will need to be smogged in a copuld of years... if you live in one of those areas that doesnt require it as often, still, it isnt legal to swap a ford 302 into a 4 cyl toyota..... also you are going to need whatever engine management your current 302 uses (computer, ignition system, etc and try t otie those into what the toyta uses (if its computerized and all that stuff, also will need to figure out what to do about all the guages and things of that nature... you will need custom motor mounts... i wouldnt mount a 4cyl toyota tranny to a 302 ford v8, not that it couldnt handle it, but its best to use at least the drivetrain that came with it, liek whatever it had connected to it, in my opinion.... again, it is not an easy swap, yes it is possible, but it wont be cheap, especially if you arent doing your own work on it....

I have an 88 mustang gt with a t-5,the car has everything I need.I will keep the smog equipment on it and I only have to smog a car when I first buy it and that's it,not every other year.I am also moving to a county that does not require smog so I am good on the smog.I have the computer and all my autometer ultra lite gauges out of my mustang will go into the runner.I am doing all the work myself.I would buy the motor mounts and

Cam

Has anyone been happy with a Downey cam? I hope so since I just purchased one with their headers. Any feedback would be great. Thanks in advance.

Mike

I'm not sure yet if we are going to do the 302 swap but it is a definate possibility as I have everything runnin wise.I was just in an accident with my mustang and will be getting paid off for the car and want to rebuild my wifes runner so I can either put that $$$ into the 302 swap along with new tranny and suspension lift or I can redo the 22re with a bigger cam,new header(pace setter now ) and also do the paint,interior,and new wheels,4.56 gears,and bumpers.

dude if youve got it do the 302. northwest off road .com can help with the swap. you will have way more fun with a v8 than the best built 4cyl.

Which cam

I purchased p/n 135118 with the ceramic coated headers. I will not be able to tell you my experience b/c I shipped the truck up from Texas sight unseen and have not even started it since it rolled off the truck. So far I have a new radiator, cam, headers, timing chain, head, etc. I am so #T%#$ b/c the individual said it ran great. I just wanted to see if anyone had any feedback. It seems everyone pushes towards LCEngineering.

I would just re-build the 22RE with a cam no bigger than 270 degrees of duration. That 22RE is a great engine!
