    Also do they have High performance 2.4l engines like the 22r's with stronger pistons and rods and all the good stuff to make them push around 180 horses out the crate or do they only beef the 22's up Im talking about the 4 banger in the 96+ engine ultimate plan i to find a HP crate engine and mate it with a stage 2 or 3 clutch?? IS that possible?

    check out www.lcengineering.com the specialize in 20r,22r,22re,2rz and 3rz motors. they also sell beefed up 2rz crate motors and performance clutches and flywheels. i would say that a stage 2 clutch would be more than adequate for your power needs.

    ACT makes a stage 2 clutch as well as www.paradiseracing.com, they have a 7 sec celica powered by a 2rz on stock cams running 60psi of boost. they also have custom machined fidanza flywheels and matching clutch kits.

    thanks for the help really good stuff, Also I was wonder about those adds you see in the paper talking about used engines with around 30000 miles on it from japan for around $1grand what they come with, if its just the block or the whole engine with the timing chain and everything.

    im pretty sure they sell the whole motor (block, head, internals, valves cams etc) because in japan they replace there motors at around 40000 miles so they sell them as is but compression tested and all that. i saw on ebay some vendor is selling 2/3rz motors rebuilt from bottom to top with all brand new parts with 0 miles on them for $1050.
