The Toyminator Werock Build

Some of you guys probably remember my last build the Daily Driver Rock Buggy Build https://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/gener...ggy-build.html that was never finished due to a massive tree falling on my house and destroying my life for what seemed like forever. Now I have a new house and things are back on track. I am Now building a Promod buggy I plan on using to compete in Werock events which has been a dream of mine for a long time now. The goal is to build this car light and simple. Here is the Parts spec

-Spider 9s
-Mega hi 9's front and rear
-22re
-Got propane Kit with tuned Garrett T3 turbo (kary is awesome to deal with)
-Trail Gear Hydro steering
-Hughes built powerglide and torque converter set at 2800 stall
-Atlas 2 5.0
-KMC beadlocks
-37" Krawlers
-Fox 2.5 air shocks 12" travel (would prefer longer but got a good deal on these)


Im going to be playing some catch up on this build for a while but I will start at the beginning. First thing on the agenda is mating the drivetrain together. I got the LC engineering 22re to Gm transmission adapter plate and flex plate. My torque converter didn't fit onto the flex plate though so I machined down the tabs on the outside of the converter and tapped some new holes in it, then drilled the flex plate to match. My first auto transmission set up ever so I hope this works

that's looking slick.

have to ask - isn't the 22RE heavy for a 4cyl? Why not a GM v6 or small 8?

A 22re with a turbo weighs almost the same (or more) as a 3400 V6 which is 185 hp from the factory. The only V8 in that weight class is the old Buick/Land Rover all aluminum motors.

Loved the last buggy, look forward to seeing how this one turns out. Plus I can't remember the last time I saw a pro mod build on here.

So how much does a 22RE weigh?

Are you at all worried about having just a two speed Trans and 2 speed T-case with suck a low gear set?

Can't wait to see more of this one. Last build was pretty killer.

1uz is very close to the 400lbs mark, which is the number given for a 22re turbo (no idea if its correct)

Plus is that the 22re is small in comparison.

You will love the turbo/pane setup, I do on mine.

What boost pressure you thinking of running?

I've never personally weighed a 22re, but I read that it was 315 lbs which sounds about right. The 3400 weighs 325 lbs which I did actually put on a scale.

As far as the motor selection goes it is a good motor that I bought rebuilt and was what I had from my old build even though I realize it is heavy for a 4 banger. Plus I already had steering stuff and built a custom oil pan for it that you can see on my old build. 22re's are good motors though with good torque and very dependable. From the videos I have seen from the GOT PROPANE truck with the same set up basically it doesn't seem to struggle with power. Not sure on the boost Mr Stubs but Kary had it tuned by his turbo guy and should be ready to go.

Going to try and update this build every other day or so till I get caught up to its current state. I am building this car on a chassis jig where I have set up the wheel base at 99.5" and the axles are set up at full compression. I will be running 3" compression in the front and 4" in the rear at ride height. Also running a twisted customs fj40 hood to go with the toy motor

Good to know. I just hope my gears are deep enough. My powerglide has a 1.82 first gear, 5.0 atlas and 5.40's in my thirds. Thoughts?
