    Hey guys.
    So this is my first 22RE build. Picked up a complete engine from the junk yard, looks to be in good shape. I'm going to get it checked for cracks and what not.
    My main question was if anyone had any problems with heat after punching these things bigger. Also if anyone has any tips on rebuilds. The only things I'm going to re-use are the block head and crank, all New parts from LCE or Enginebldr.
    Let me know what yall think. I'll do my best to keep up with pictured and update as much as I can.

    I have heard of people swapping over to a v6 radiator when they go bigger bore. That seems to solve any over heating issue. Also making sure you have a fan shroud helps a lot. There is a guy that sells a complete 22re rebuild video. It is pretty informative. I bought it when I did mine. Shows you step by step how to check clearances and proper torque values. The video was $11.00 plus $3 shipping on eBay. Good luck.
