^ agreed

I do occasionally lust for a v8, but the 2.2 is just to reliable in my truck to change it out

Do some reading. Not every thread in this section needs someone suggesting a V8 swap. How many have you done?

ive done enough reading, i know a 2.2 will push 24's no problem.

but if he wants to go fast with 22s, building a 2.2 for power wont be cheap, $2500 for a turbo to make 200+hp, or swap in a v8 for less and gain a little more power.

you can build a 2.2 but its expensive.. easiest way to make power is $2000+ in turbo. end of story

i can swap in a brand new crate lq9 with tranny i have for $800+ wiring harness, which is over 200hp and has 0 miles.. or build a turbo setup for $2000 minimum

i might have to end up going the route of looking at performance upgrades and doing them considering the fact that ive already put a new tranny and brand new 4 cylinder in my truck this year..... im not neccesarily looking for speed bcuz im gonna b so low.....

lol V8 swaps cost more than $800. At the minimum plain old 350ci engines are running around $1500-$2000 for low miles. You obviously didn't read the thread enough
