Bamadawg Posted August 21, 2008 Report Share Posted August 21, 2008 I have had this lil '82 720 several years now... Like most... I had dreams of tweaking it with a engine swap, or head swap, but jus haven't got around to it. My main gripe with the lil truck is its non-ability to pull hills with any gusto - a VW Bug comes to mind compared to mine. Maybe this is not normal to begin with for the Z22 eqipped with 111,000 miles? I know the exhaust is worn, so maybe a clogged CAT? I am wondering, besides a new exhaust, what other lil tid-bits can be done to the stock Z22 to give it a lil zing. I think I have read about a distributor swap which deletes the exhaust plugs with only 5 wires. Any other tips would be great... Seems I have read a few posts online about pepping the lil stocker, but that was a few years back, and those brain cells are surely gone by now, so any links to mods are greatly accepted also. I do have a L20 head and some aftermarket SS valves I bought back when I had great ambition to do the head-swap, but that involves a tranny swap and lots more than I have time for now... I have a 16 y/o that will be going to college next year, so free time isn't that plentiful right now, but could do some weekend-warrior tweaks to it before it gets cold weather. ALSO: What flavor tires go good with this year 720? I have found the Goodyear Wrangler AT's I think they are, but man... $175/ea. for those LT tires!!! I think I read the OEM was a Dunlop tire... jus wondering what has worked on yalls 720s... Seems any LT I find (few and far between) in 195/75R/14; 205/75R/14 is so over priced. Thanks...
