The only decent mods to do, intake, header&exhaust, and cam. There are a few other things that will add a little power, just not really worth the money. I would personally leave your motor alone internally, and build the other one. When the other is built, swap all the externals and you are set. Search the pirate4x4.com toyota forum. There is an ecm mod that can be done rather than spend money on a chip. Good luck.

i used to have a '90 4x4 w/22re. i put some downey headers on it and could feel the difference right off the bat. so i would say headers are a real good place to start.

Skip the chip - not worth the price.

Other than header (Downey has issues with the EGR/gasket), FIPK, electronic ignition, hi flow cat, cat-back - that's all you can do to bleed the indestructible 22RE for all she has. I didn't notice a whole lot of extra power doing all of that. Either rebuild it, turbo it (check LC Engineering's site for both options) or drop a small block crate engine in there (my next choice - hahaha). :D
