Random info to fill your head:
You have a 5th generation (5th gen) celica (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toyota_Celica#Fifth_generation_.2F_T180_Series_.28 1989.E2.80.931993.29). 5th gen covers 1990-1993. It can also be called by it's chassis code, which yours would be a ST184.

The 2.2l engine is a 5SFE, that's the "code" of the engine from toyota. The S is the important thing here, as it falls into Toyota's S series engines (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toyota_S_engine#5S) which are awesome. The 2.0l 3SFE, 3SGE, and the turbo 3SGTE all share a lot of common parts with the 5SFE as they are basically the same engine, the 2.2l 5SFE is basically just a "stroked" 3SFE.
