Sounds like a great trip.

I had a friend the had a slight blown HG. It happened at the start of the summer season and he wheeled the Con and 4-Dice almost every weekend until the end of summer. You never know how long it will last.

Who's John?

Update: I've just found two 22re available right here in Smithers junkyard!

First 22re has 330xxxKM from an 89. Water pump, throttle body are missing, & distributor is pulled out. It has headgasket & timing chain done about 2 years ago. The guy actually had it running around town until he went into the ditch last winter. The yard is asking $500 for it.

Second one is arriving next week. Don't have much details about it but the yard says it's supposed to be completed w/ low mileage. Goes for $750.

Option 3: Spend $1000 locally just for a headgasket job on my existing engine, & keeping the oil burning issues unfixed.

Option 4: Spend $1400 (asking price) for a drop in 22re rebuilt by a guy from a shop down in Vancouver. + ~$150 for me to tow it up here. (I'm going to see him next Friday.)

Option 5: Spend $2122 tax-in for a reman. at http://www.canadaengines.com/ ($1900 for a reman. + $336 core charge + $224 shipping)

Option 6: Spend $2400 at Disturbed Industries in Vancouver to rebuild my engine.

Option 7: $3000 to rebuilt mine locally at Enjoy Machine.

Option 8: To do the rebuilt myself (except machining) like Kewlynx suggested. I just need to figure out the total cost and when I'll have the time & place & resource to do it though...

Option 9: $650 for a 2.4l diesel eng, clutch and 5 spd trans. (http://www.usedvictoria.com/classified-ad/24L-toyota-diesel-pu-engine-clutch-and-trans_14075730) I'm afraid i'll be way underpowered with my camper total at near 5800-6000lbs though...

I'd avoid the diesel, unless it's got a turbo; it'll be really slow, as you suspect. Of course, you'll probably get good mileage. I like diesels, but I'd think a good 22RE would be a better way to go in your situation. It'd be the simplest route as well...

The 22R is a fairly simple engine. If you can follow instructions and can give attention to detail you could rebuild it yourself for roughly $800 - $1000, including a brand new head. We've seen what you can do with body repair. It sure seems like you've got what it takes for this job. -- Matt

A little update:

If it can be done for $800-$1000 in the states, I wonder how much more it'll cost in BC w/ our 12% tax here, + shipping & custom etc.

I've found 1 freshly rebuilt 22re in Whistler for $1200. Haven't check it out yet, but it has plastic chain guide.

Yesterday I went check out the $1400 one in Langley. This guy in his early 60s surely does this for a living. He sells about 2 of these every month apparently. All stock (plastic guide as well), except the 0.x10" crank machining he mentioned about? (I had no idea what that meant though)

Looks like if he sells the one below before I might buy mine in July, I could get him to put in the metal chain guide this time.

Have you priced http://www.engnbldr.com/ ?
I know you mentioned his name.

I purchased my stuff through him.
Wish I would of bought the long block instead.

I know it's a chunk of change but you would have the best.

More power better gas mileage and a engine that would really last.

Although I do like the idea of the V6 swap.
