1989 Mazda B2200 SE-5 2.2 from North America
This is a very strong truck, and I plan on keeping it for a long time
I own an '89 Mazda B2200. The engine has 172,000 miles and misses while driving. I am in the process of putting a new engine in it, but it's a slow process.
I need a reman. head and was wondering if anyone knew where I could get a good, but not expensive one? I am putting a header, Weber carb, and 2 1/2" pipe with a Borla muffler. I need a good head because I am planning on running now when I get the bottom end of the engine finished. I also need to know if the auto trans. rear end has a higher gear ratio, because 1st gear sucks. I would appreciate any info anybody can help me with.
If anyone has any info, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have been looking into the turbo thing for a while. So, I need a MX-6 turbo motor, ecu, and what kind of tranny do you use and what kind of rear end? The b2200 motor I have milked every little bit out of a 60,000 mile motor. SLOW. I need the turbo. Do you guys know if the motor mounts line right up?, etc.

Hi I owned a 1989 Mazda b2200 for a long time. I was having problem with carb + head + ecu. To start the engine had 213k miles, so I rebuilt the engine, got a new head from a Carolina machine shop, went to a salvage yard & found an 86 Mazda 626 with EFI setup, installed it with A MEGASQUIRT EFI controller. The cheapest setup I have installed & it works very well. Does not required fusion/engineering to work with.
