I like your darker brown interior better than my tan interior though, even if the brown is referred to as "baby poop brown" on celica-gts.com. LOL

is it safe to say that the wire harness, exhaust manifold are the same as the toyota pickup's?

Yes it is - depending on the year...
I wrote this up on classic-celica.com:
"The exhaust manifolds had at least four major changes over the life of the 20/22R/RE engines, not counting the differences in emissions provisions, as some had A.I.R. pump holes, some had O2 sensors... The 20R manifolds were all “blowfish” manifolds – they had all four ports coming into a common area, looking like a blowfish, hence the nickname. The early ones had one large hole for a single downpipe. The later 20R and early 22R manifolds had two smaller holes for twin downpipes, but still had one common area. They then went to a tri-Y setup, where 1 and 4 came together, and 2 and 3 came together, and each pair went to one of the twin downpipes. All of the ’75-’84 manifolds had one bolt (stud) hole between #2 and 3, and round ports. The ’85-’95 manifolds had pear shaped ports to match the “new” head, had two bolt holes between #2 and 3, and were tri-Y with twin down pipes, so do not really work (but can) on ’84 and older heads."
So other than that, they were the same between cars and trucks.

Now let me add, there were at least three different downpipes. Obviously the first was the single pipe, then the two downpipe, which there were (at least) two versions. The early twin downpipe was much longer than the later one used in later Celicas. The longer pipes made better power.

its gonna be hard to find specific pieces like that but

the dual downpipes can they fit any of those exhaust manifolds?

and which exhaust manifold would you think is the best?

so the wiring harness are all the same for those old 22r toyotas?

any bad things about those OBX exhaust manifolds?


seems like I already have a double pipe downpipe

As I said:

Yes, you do have the longer twin downpipe and they all bolt on the same, but you have the shitty blowfish manifold. You need a manifold from at least an '82, as late as July '84. They look much different than yours, as they are a true tri-y.
The OBX header is very good. It is stainless steel and has a thick flange plate. The only problems are that it runs VERY close to the unibody frame rail at the cat, the welds may need some cleaning up, and the bolt holes may need a bit of "massaging".
The ignition wiring should be the same between Celicas, Coronas and trucks FOR THE SAME YEAR, but not necessarily from year to year. Igniters are different between some years, alternators were different - internally and externally regulated among other things, and PUs had externally regulated longer than cars did for some reason.
