i have no idea about the pistons, shafts, and even if they make a lsd for a celica.

celica are run with chains,
spark plug are all the same not much difference,
TRD makes LSD for celica and also you can't really compare LSD they are all the same.
TRD makes pistons for 2zz only in japan, and brashboy, trial makes stroker kit.

Just an advice, the celica parts are almost same, there isn't BEST parts for celica. The difference between parts are quality and sound, and characteristic. So you can't really say BEST to any parts. Also Its very hard to find celica parts. only good parts are available in japan. Go grab yourself HYPER_MAG celica editon in little tokyo or japanese book store. And they have almost every parts list and detailed information on celica parts from Japan.

if TRD ever approves their cam projects for the celica, maybe we'll get lucky.

There are several lsd's for the Celica. TRD helical or clutch type, Kaaz, Quaife, and Cusco. I may be missing some. I wouldn't say they are all they same either and there's a definite difference between lsds and types.

Trial makes a crankshaft as a part of its stroker kit.
Wiseco's are nice forged pistons, and probably cheaper than special ordering other pistons from Japan.
totalseal.com are great piston rings, and btw the brand that Lisa Kubo uses.
Denso Iridiums are the best N/A plugs. If you have F/I go with colder plugs like the Zex nitrous plugs.
Quaife Helical LSD is probably the best LSD for the celica.

Crower makes excellent rods. Eibach actually has valve springs for the celica.
