What does your engine need 50 houses for? It'll be just fine under the hood of your truck.

The Mazda B2300 has the same version of the motor that the Ranger has, so no VVT on it. The Mazda3 like my wife drives though, has the VVT. And BTW, its only 20hp more.

The Mazda B-series is the same as the Ranger, it uses the RWD platform DuraTech motor that the Ranger uses.

The Mazda cars use the VVT enhanced version of the Duratech motor.
