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.
I'd tell you about my truck but you probably wouldn't believe me.

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.
i didnt break it, i was just testing its durability
