    Oh, yeah, I definitely went the expensive way. Part of that was how much I enjoy the 22rte engine, and partially a big insurance payout from getting hit by a car on my bike. I have also done a lot of work on my engine, but have never built an engine from bottom to top. This seemed like a great way to get that experience and get a badass engine.

    All in all with all of the big and little things from the engine parts to the ignition system and every little nut and bolt I replaced it is probably looking at about 3K..... so what I paid for the Truck hahaha

    That is what I was looking at for a rebuild to net like 110hp.

    So far I'm +$100 on my 1UZ VVti...but it ain't gonna come easy once I crack into the project.

    Been doing a lot of pondering on new tires. I need them, and have been thinking of changing size. I'm currently running 205/65r15 on 15x7s and think I may go down to 195/55r15. It'll give me an inch of drop, and calculations show that it should even make my speedometer read right.

    Finally the engine is back under the hood!! My girlfriend and I had some fun wrangling the engine into the bay and mating it to the trans. I definitely now know why I was told that it is easier to drop the engine in with the trans attached. Never the less, everything ended up mating up nicely. I was able to get 3 bolts into the bell housing before leaving on a vacation, so cranking the engine will have to wait another week.

    Finally almost done. I have a leaky fuel injector o ring, and the starter isn't engaging. Gonna pull the starter to check it out, and pull the intake plenum to get to the fuel rail. Two steps forwards and one back.

    Did you change flywheel or something out of the ordinary?

    New off brand starter?
