22re's are never gonna be all that great for performance, unfortunately. they came from a fork lift engine in the 70's, for pete's sake. From point A to point B is where they excel. They are excellent engines for what they are...sturdy, reliable, easy to work on, decent gas mileage...

that being said... depending on your know how, your opportunity cost, etc... do it yourself or have the pros do it. I started from learning how to change my oil to doing my timing chain to swapping diffs. I have put a lot of time, effort and worry into doing it myself. Just know that to diy is a commitment well beyond the one job... But since I got burnt bad by the shop on my timing chain and had to do it myself behind them, I' glad I know how to do some things.

just my $.02

oh and my 93 jeep is easier to work on than my 22re... sorry guys! lol <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/scared.gif" alt="" />
