Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I need to know what size engine I can fit.. all mine
has is a little 4 cylinder but I wanna try and fit a v6
in it. Also need to know if i have to find specific
motors or if i can use any one that fits

1 Answer


The old Ford courier/Madza B series was only designed to use the 4 cylinder gas or the Mazda diesel motors, so everything you want to do is going to be customized, there is no direct drop in that will work. Now I have seen small block V8's in these little trucks but the guy have told me that it is a customized nightmare getting everything right, so even going V6 will present its own problems. It's just not worth the hassle unless your just looking for a project to tinker with. Good luck.
