Default Changing out a cam on a 22RE

After driving Randy's rig in Moab last week I really enjoyed the cam he has in his motor. It is a RV cam I believe made for mid range torque. Our set ups are identical so I know what I can expect from installing one.

I need to know how long a job this is and if there is anybody out there that can help me. I am sure I do a lot of it my self but engines are not my thing. I would like to do this before Moab if possible but if not that is OK.

Also what else can I do to increase my power while my head is off, not that head I don't have a ton of money to spend on it but do have some.

All suggestions are welcome except for the bigger engine ones Not enough cash for that right now.

Interesting... I ran the same cam and head in the '93 and loved it. Idled great! Dave, I think maybe your cam timing is off. Try an adjustable cam sprocket maybe?

it sounds to me like your not tuned properlly.. problly off by a tooth or 2, check to see if your adjustable cam sproket moved some.. of corse check all this at TDC cylender 1

When my body rots off, I will have what you're looking for and it will likely have less than 100k miles on it. With a new carburetor it might even get more than 11mpg on 85. Actually on Sunday I drove up to Evergreen and then down to Roxborough through Conifer, then home on Wads hitting almost every light red all the way to Lafayette with just the left hub accidentally left locked in and I got just over 12mpg for the day. Pretty good for me for half hiway/half city driving. It idles like a champ at about 750.

Dave, that makes two... I bet your fix might be a whole lot easier than you think.

I don't have the experience you are looking for, but I have recently found that I am learning much more about 22r/re engines. I'd like to lend a hand/learn when you take this job on and will be watching this thread.

The only thing I did not do when I built this engine is lower the block deck or use domed pistons (it was a brand new factory short block, just about the last one in the North American parts system).




I'm serious, straight up trade for a decent stock head and throttle body.




Dead serious.




Really.
