Power is in the head. Period. Find someone that has experience w/ this engine (off-roaders are good for sources/shops) cuz you can't just port it like anything else. It's about re-shaping the port, not just hogging it out.

Sorry to point you to another forum, but I already posted it there...

if you put a 20r head on that will help you get more power out of your 22r. the head will give you more velocity & has a smaller chamber so you will have higher compression. it is more fore topend power. the 22r head is basicly a truck head it will give you great torque down low but it has no topend performance.

get a header and 2in exhaust with a straight threw muffler you will wake the eng up that way. advance your timing till you get spark knock under load. k&n type air filter and FULL synth oil switch (eng,tranny,diff)

all of these will make a difference but you will notice the exhaust more than anything else, plus you dont have ta take your eng apart. cuz if ya really want ta throw money @ your eng you should jus buy a built hybrid from these guys http://www.lcengineering.com/
and with a few V-6 upgrades to your fuel delivery sys you could have a eng with like 190+ hp when ya got 115-ish hp now. also dont forget a limited slip diff and new shocks and stiffer springs.

What kinds of fuel sys upgrades? I'm very interested to know, as I am trying to upgrade my 22re as cheaply as I can Very Happy
Also, explain the timing advance-to-spark knock, What reactions am I looking for when advancing?

The problem with bolting on a 20R head is that it uses a different intake (different shaped ports and relocated water passages), so the EFI will not bolt back up. I have seen 20R heads modified to match 22R intakes, but that is a PITA! Mill the 22R head about .020", install an LC adjustable timing gear (unless anybody knows of another source), a mild cam that is compatible with EFI (wide LSA >110), gasket match the intake and head, a mild port and exhaust polish with a GOOD 3 or 5 angle valve job, free flowing exhaust, and a K&N type air filter with free flowing ducting, and you should end up around 130+HP, with a long, smooth power band. Anything more than that, and it gets expensive fast, because you need to change the throttle body, injectors, revise the computer... and ensure that everything stays compatible.

srry the "V-6" was a typo should a been "supra" Embarassed

i meant changing the AFM to the supra one. more air, more fuel

on mine i have it advanced to a happy spot near the edge of the gauge, you will hear a sound like bad spark plugs or "pinging" if you went to far
