I've never been able to find pistons for the 1.8, but I've seen rings for sale on eBay and such. The 1.8 block with 2.2T heads is a wonderful combo if you already have all the parts. The block is arguably tougher than any other N/A engine given the thick cylinder walls and compact pistons.
However, if you can get your hands on an EJ22 shortblock and EJ25/EJ20 heads, you'll be way better off. That motor is the balls, I'll probably never build a different 4cyl unless I get around to a 2.5 destroker. The 22T heads just don't flow like the others, and the extra displacement helps a lot too.
Just my .02.

Oh yea, fuel efficiency would be another win for the 1.8 I think.
