A V8 is a much bigger job than a cam. Personally, I'd do the cam, but if he wants ALOT more power then it may be time to ditch the 22R (or RE, which is the fuel injected version). A better exhaust system is also a good way to make more power.

So it's not fuel injected? Swapping in a fuel injection system from a donor truck would be a huge boost to performance.

That's a pretty big job. Gas tank, computer, are the heads different? Almost better off to buy a 22RE if you're going to buy almost all of it anyways.

Yup the heads are different on a 22r and a 22re and so are a few other things I believe.That would be way to much work-If you're going to do that just switch in a new engine(22re)and then sell the 22r.

whoa what timing i have, im parting out my 86, you can have everything you need for a efi swap for 300 bucks, including the motor, except i blew the timing chain, but that wont matter if you plan on a rebuild.
