if your gonna do that why not just put a 22re in instead? it'll pretty much bolt in, but you would have to wire up the computer! <IMG SRC="smilies/bounce2.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/bounce.gif" border="0">
I dont know if one carb is any better than the other but I'm pretty positive the long blocks are identical. I have an 85 4runner and I replaced the motor at 280000 miles with an 94 22re block with 25k miles from a pickup. There was no difference in the blocks but I reused all my original efi stuff.
If you look at the specs on the motors, the 22re and 22r are the same bore and stroke etc. The turbos are different.
I dont think upgrading an 84 carb with an 85 carb will do much for you. If you have 2 complete trucks side by side just check each hose and compare the two. If you are just using the carb. Just swap it in. If it doesnt work just put the old one back on. Its not very hard. JMO
84 and 85 are different, different manifolds, different carburators etc. 85-95 are the same. My problem is I have an 84 motor I purchased from some asshole who won't honor their warranty. I have an 85 motor in my truck that is the strongest toyota motor I have ever driven/seen/etc. I would like to put the 85 motor in my 84 4Runner, but am not sure how much wiring I will have to move etc. I would like to use the 85 exhaust and intake manifolds, and would like to use the 85 carb too... So does anyone know much about the wiring harnesses in these two?
