Jim Butler - 1993 B2200

Post by Madlowmazda » Thu Feb 08, 2007 7:06 pm

Just finished my newest mazda project-

It's a stock b2200 truck, ripped out the old carb engine and installed a Mazda bongo 1.8 FE sohc 12 valve RWD motor into it, EFI! Used MS-1 with stock distributor from carb truck, vac advance. Runs on e85 fuel. Using stock b2200 fi fuel pump. I will probably go bak to regular unleaded, because of e85's corrosive properties to the fuel system, until i upgrade to stainless.

what transmission did you use? how hard was it to find that 1.8 motor? what other cars came with it?

used stock b2200 truck transmission.

The bongo engine is from the bongo van made in Canada and overseas. They had a variety of "FE" egines that where carbed/ fuel injected and diseil. Mine is a 1.8 FE fuel injected engine.

I believe the bongo is the only source for that engine with the 12 valve cylinder head and distributor on the side.
