When I'm done my Rona will be sporting a 22re and w58 5speed gear box. Pictures will be posted asap! And my friend and I justed picked up his rt52 which is a 69 coupe.

Nice! Waiting for pics. Was the Celica a GT or GT-S?

You're preaching to the choir. I can tell you more about 3rd gen Celicas and 2xR/RE motors than you'll ever want to know. You'll find me at [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] with the same screen name.
The reason I asked which year was because if you had a choice, I'd go with the '85 and later block. The connecting rods are about 35 grams heavier each, but the pistons are about 100g lighter each. The much smaller combustion chambers and flat top pistons make a much better burn and allowed a higher compression ratio, which is why they make about 11 more HP. Plus if you get the later electronics, you get TCCS. Unfortunately, w/o a lot of work and finding the correct timing chain, they cannot be upgraded to the double row timing chain (which yours didn't come with either but is easy to change), although a steel backed guide is available.

The later engines are definitely more abundant, what is the purpose of that raised ring on top of the piston?

Are you talking about the raised ring on early or late pistons? In the early engines, it appears that Toyota was trying to make a "domed" piston and keep a chamber for the burn. This is much better than the 20R, which was just a flat top piston that had a slight raised area to increase compression, but not near as good as what the later engines ended up with. On late engines, the raised outer ring provides "quench" - the squish area that forces the A/F mixture into the combustion chamber for the better burn. The smaller height wise that the quench area can be, the better, down to about .030", which is less than the thickness of the typical head gasket.

Killer prices! I wonder how the quality is? I had always looked to [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] for good prices (and he's local - I can drive over and pick up parts in 1/2 an hour), although some of his quality isn't the greatest, like piston sets that have over 4g difference between lightest and heaviest, and head gaskets that seep after even a very short while.
