    so i know its been awhile since i've posted here... but today i picked up a near mint condition mazda b2200 ( with a 5 speed :D ) from an old lady for $150 bucks... motor kinda runs but its tempermental... just decided to run like shit once in a while... so heres the question... anyone ever heard of or seen a pickup like this with a motor swap from an RX7??? just like a simple 13B with a twin turbo imported??? after all... both of them being rear wheel drive... this shouldn't be all that difficult should it??? any advice would be loverly...

    I know its old... I haven't been here in a while...

    But, swap the head from a turbo Probe/MX6 and all the goodies over.

    Boosted 2200 will make 250/280 ish at the wheels.

    getting the engine in is cake, driveshaft needs to be adjusted and then wiring is the main issue, go to mazdabscene.com they have a few rotary swaps and what not, i have a 88 im putting a 302 in
