I say keep the 22re. It makes no power to speak of but thats the beauty of it, it never dies. you can spruce it up a bit, headers, cam etc. PS loose the body lift. I love my 26 yo 22re......[IMG][IMG][/IMG][/IMG]Name:  IMG_4745-1.jpg

Short of a bigger engine I do not think the 22re will ever PULL like you want it to. Go for the cummins. I still vote 22re
