why is it that suckers like us that actually care about their veezy's and reezy's have valvetrain and injector noises louder than everything and then your common nut-job driving down the street in their busted up yote is purring like a pissed off veezy, i mean, kitten. :thumbdown :thumbdown :thumbdown :thumbdown :ugh3:

Maybe they are just supposed to be this loud. Haha I hope not but I will adjust the valves and check clearance to see whats up. Thanks again guys!

Actually you have a point. routinely people post here about their noisey engines when the fact is 22RE engines are amongst the noisiest engines around.

In fact Toyota engines as a whole are a noisey lot. I figure that they make them to looser tolerances so they last longer

Of course there is a such thing as too noisey, It's just real hard to tell how loud something is in text.

mine too, only like 90k and it sounds like its going out. I have all kinds of noises and pings, I keep looking at it, adjusting the valves and timing and checking the fluids and its not getting any better. I think Im going to pull my timing back to like 0 and see what that does.......sorry to hijack the thread!

one more point

Another thing that will cause noisey valve train on a 22r is over-tightening the valve cover.

The studs that hold the valve cover down are attached to the rocker shaft pedestals and if you over-tighten, then it actually pulls the rocker shafts up and increases vavle clearances.
