My engine is blown. Instead of rebuilding I am thinking of replacing. My friend has done a 22re to 22ret and he says that the new engine rus great. Before mine blew his was killing mine in power and torque. My question to you knowledgable people is, will a 22ret bolt into my 89 v6? what kind of fabrication/replacement and I looking at. Before anyone asks, I have heard from almost everyone that the 22 series is stronger and more reliable than the v6 engines.
