Actually, if I have it right, even the 'language' is totally different! The one used in the 22 is virtually obsolete
Much larger processors in the Raptor as well. No small task, at all...

A good question, I have heard about the corrosion issues and the air frame being referred to as aging in "dog years". If there is any restart of production or major upgrades including air frame service life extension then these issues need tackling as well. Now couple all this with an ADEPT derived engine and you have something very interesting.

For embedded processors: right now everybody is going to ARM. Lower power consumption vs x86 is very important. I would not use the most advanced (i.e. smallest transistor size) process available: I would take something more radiation resistant. And more resistant to high power microwave interference.
