What’s a good store to get performance engine parts? Thanks.
Ok thanks a lot. I’ll check all of those websites.I get oem parts from toyota, amayama (japan) and toyotapartsdeal (usa). Performance parts, primemr2, mr2heaven. For aftermarket engine parts I find my local general performance shops are fine, ie ARP bolts, cometic gaskets, HKS etc.
Edit, JDM aftermarket parts from rhdjapan or nengun.
Yes they are good but from memory they are metal so ideally you would have the block and head milled to perfect flatness first. I prefer a stock OEM head gasket but they are not ideal for high boost- in my opinion over 17-18psi.EDIT- one more thing, are cosmetic head gaskets good for high boost levels? Are they a good head gasket overall? Thanks
Ok, I’m trying for around 16-17 psi so the cosmetic one will hopefully work then.

It’s kinda complicated...Are you in the middle of a rebuild? Or what is wrong with your engine?
In that case I would suggest the cometic and mill the head and block during the rebuild. As long as the tune is good you should be good to go.It’s kinda complicated...
My car is actually a 1994 celica with the 1991 sw20 motor swapped into it and I’ve been racing it. I wanna ramp up the boost a bit so I ordered some ARP head studs already but I haven’t got a head gasket yet since I’m skeptic which one I should get. I was gonna order an A’PEXi one off of nengun but it’s a long wait time from Japan so I’m looking at what my options are before I buy it. I haven’t started tearing down the engine yet and the head gasket currently in it leaks a tiny bit.
