What is an 18R?

Can anyone tell me what an 18R engine is? I found a 1st gen Celica, don't know the exact year, that has an 18R engine in it. It was a project car, and I'm thinking of buying it from a guy. Does anyone here know?

nice! does an 18rg head fit an 18r block easily?

if so, i may consider this before a 22r swap.

it's much much easier to just get a complete 18RG than putting the 18rg head on the 18rc block and fixing all the other issues like low low low compression pistons.
