proper and most bitchin' valve job.

Toyota Hilux 22R Engine performance rebuild in Australia
I decided to rebuild My Hilux engine as the one in it is losing oil
pressure. Since I was going to do it myself I thought I might as well try
and get more performance out of it in the process. As all I got from
machine shops was dumb looks when they found I was building something other
than a V8 I thought I might as well share what I've learnt. I already know
an engine swap would have given more power for similar money spent. I
didn't go the engine swap route b/c I didn't want the headaches of making
everything fit and then the endless hassles with getting it all approved.
Pistons,cam, timing kit, over size valve kit and head bolt kit came from
Adjustable timing gear came from LC Engineering
All other parts came from Australian suppliers.

By now the connecting rods are ready for pistons. We recommend having the
machine shop clean your old pistons for you, if you plan to reuse them.
It's not fun at all by hand. Here we show you how they install the rod pins
into the connecting rods to connect with the pistons. Then they will
measure the pistons to determine the final bore size of the cylinder walls
before they are honed.
