What other Toyota engines can I swap for a 22R(5-spd.)

Asked by Dec 24, 2006 at 01:42 AM about the Toyota Pickup

Question type: Car Customization

Engine is 1981-1984 I think. -22R                                     Has 5 speed transmission                                              Was just wondering what other engines would work with that '81-'84 Toyota 5 speed tranny.                                                Engine to transmission adapters are very expensive new and can't find used anywhere.                                                        But I am a machinist if you have any ideas.                          Thank you very much for your time!

TT, this is a question that needs to be answered by a dealer. They should be able to tell you all compatible Toyota engines for that tranny. If you can produce adapters however you might have a lucrative little side business! Here however in an online FAQ that deals with a lot of your questions and may be a good starting point for you. Good luck! http://vpizza.org/~jmeehan/toyotadiesel/

there is a straight six that will bolt right up to the tranny and motor mounts it is from the supra i think, I forget the motor designation but check out forums they will tell you more

the 22RE 4cyl. and 3VZ 6cyl. were stock in the 89-94 models and i know each had a 5 speed tranny option so i'm sure either of those would prolly work if you want to stay with a toyota truck engine. btw that inline 6 supra engine wont fit unless you cut into the firewall.

the 22re was for 89-94 models, its a 2.4L 4 cyl. besides the 3L V6 there are also several diesel options from the 88-92 land-cruisers, such as the 4 cyl 3L and the 2Lii-t, a turbo charged 2.4 L. all of these engines are bolt ons, i dont know about manual to auto or visa versa

Hi. Did you ever find a replacement engine that could bolt straight into the place of your 22R onto the 5 speed transmission?? Please let me know as I need to replace mine. I am based in Zambia where the 1RZ and 2RZ engines are very common but not the 22R. Does anyone know if the 1RZ or 2RZ will fit as a direct replacement to the 22R? Any other tips or suggestions would be most welcome. Thanks, Alan in Mkushi, Zambia.

Small block Chevs are a popular fit in some countries such a Australia, and a number of companies make gearbox adaptor bellhousings, and also sometime mounting kits. Google The Rod Shop in Castlemaine Victoria Australia, or also try Dello Bellhousings and adaptor kits.

I'm only 12 I don't know much but one engine I know fits is a 4.0 cyl v6 they will fit in any 70s to early 2000s Toyota pickup. If you are looking at a Toyota pickup I would go for a early 70s or a 85 to 2005 the 79 up to 84 have been known for the chassis to rust I hope you find this helpful

Will a 2200 motor out of a 92 Toyota Camry fit in a 94 Toyota pickup

11 people found this helpful.

OK. I realize this q happened 10yrs ago. So don't know how 'this'works. 1st of all: 22r=22r The fact that it is a 4x4; is probably ur suspenion, trans, & the all other components that go along w/ 4x4. SO a 22r is a 22r.
