88 4runner 3.0 to built 22RE swap

So i decided that its going to be cheap to put a swap a 22re engine into my 4runner instead of a 3.4L. I plan to bore it .30 over, port and polish, and run a cam. My question is am i going to need to upgrade my injectors by doing this? Another question is does anybody have suggestions for how to do the wiring should i just pull out the whole cab wiring harness and get the right one for a 22re or is there an easier way?

Why swap a gutless motor for another gutless motor? I'd just fix what ya got if you don't want to 3.4 it. From what I understand the early 3.0's are not too bad of motors.

going backwards does not make sense , you will do MORE work to put in a 22re then a 3.4L ... 3.4L is the way to go for sure !!

this is not just because I sell swap headers , or do the installs ..
it is a newer tech engine , and just is better !

I must agree to go with the 3.4L

I'm kinda regretting that I stuck with the 22re. I bought a .020 bored over block, 291 cam from Low Range, Tri-Y headers and oversized valves for it.
Probably could've spent the same amount of money on a 3.4L swap.

The 22re is a good engine, but it gets expensive to get a decent amount of power out of it.

You can do what you want.

Guaranteed you'll be left wanting after you swap down from this swap.

Add me to the chorus - it'll be more work to swap the 22RE than a 5VZE, you'll have less power than a 5VZE, and with a modded 22RE you'll be less reliable than the 5VZE. Unless you already have the modded 22RE on a stand waiting to go into something, this makes no sense.

But to answer your question, you don't need fuel mods to run a cam.

you will also need to move motor mounts around on frame or get a kit, the V6 will be more forward than a 22re. Good luck

thanks for the input everybody i know all the facts about the 3.4 and how much easier it is the problem is i don't have enough my to put out there for a 3.4 and to buy all the conversion stuff its actually a lot more expensive to do the 3.4 than then 22RE! i was able to pick up a running 22re for 200, and a tranny for 100 i have good connections all i have left is to rebuild and drop it in!

I have 92 Runner good body, bad motor and trans, diff.

I welcome everyone that can give any and all advice. . .

Do you just need to swap the engine harness and ECU? What about the cabin harness under the dash? Can you use the original?
