Theres the f8 both electronic carbureted and fuel injected, the fe efi, the bp twin cam from the miata, the f2 efi and the g6(b2600). All these suppose to fit a b2200 without major conversion but the easiest to find would be the bp, f8 and the g6.

You could try george from clarke rd next to the nagar, he suppose to get engines soon 678-5511. The f8 is the easiest to get parts for. But what work have you done on your engine tho? The f6 is virtually bullet proof if maintained properly by a good mechanic. Mine did 250k km and just needed some head work. Was surprised actually how great condition the block was in. Problem is when it's cold tho.
mark27 wrote:Did you rebore the block? Was the correct size rings used? Talked with a mechanic by me today and he was saying that almost all mazda f engines he worked on did not respond well to standard sized rings and it is best to rebore and go over sized like 10 thou or so. By the way the rf can also work with your gearbox just need the rf bellhousing.
mark27 wrote:Bro it seems that mechanic did some serious guess work your vehicle and those engines are the basic of the basics to work on. Judging from what you described he probably didn't even consider honing the block. Would be interesting to know his capabilities with more complex modern engines. Finally legislation is now being brought forward to deal with issues like this regarding small businesses.
