22r upgrade

I'm planning on upgrading my 22r engine, im not sure what year it is, just know that its a 22r. Im on a tight bugget too, so i was wondering if you guys can help me out. I want better performance but i don't know who makes good performance upgrades for 22r's. All i need is pistons, head, and cam shaft. Also what are good ratios, because i have no idea. Also any good sources on the net you guys can lead me into. I don't know if this was very clear, but if you guys need more details i'll try my best to explain ....thnx.

best bang for buck

i would leave it stock and upgrade to a weber carb , I picked up about 15 horses and it set me back $379 and it only takes about 20 minutes to install

hmmmm.... What's involved in adding the efi? Don't you need ecu, injectors, fuel pump, I heard you even need the fuel tank. I'd love to hear more.

I suggest 22r block / 20r head (flows better) / header/ mild cam/ weber carb to start on a budget. Stay simple, you won't regret it. There are of course many other options including dual side draft mikunis or belt driven supercharger/carb setup. Check out the 200+ normally aspirated goodies at www.lcengineering.com ( that's LCENGINEERING) Nothing against EFI except computerizing unecessarily & it's a truck that may be going through lots of off road stuff. EFI kinda touchy for that sort of fun IMO, better for strictly street situation.
