    I would have to say from a relaibility standoint the 22R has to be one of the greatest engines ever. Toyota is known for high quality engines, hell they even mentioned it in my buisness class as a good example of company ethics reflecting on popular opinion. And to think the 22R stands out among them, that says something

    EIDT- here is the link 22R
