5.0 Mazda

Someone was telling me that there was a Mazda Bseries with a 5.0L V8 swap, true?

If so does anyone have any pictures/videos?

being the fact that your truck is 100 identical to a ranger minus a few cosmetic parts any 5.0L ranger is the same...

On RPS there is atleast 4 that I can easily remember. Besides, what is the difference besides a couple trim pieces? If you meant all B-series (including 2000, 2200, 2300 etc.) you'll have a never ending search.

But not everyone and their brother has a Bseries



Well I believe it was a lifted 4wd Mazda with a 5.0, not a lowered racer.

It would look like this, now that's not a mazda its a ranger, but IIRC the engine bay is the same, as is the swap.

Most of the mazda v8 swaps are into the older mazda's, I haven't seen any pics of newer 98+ mazda's with the v8 swap.

Ah, thanx Dustin. That's the one the kid was talking about; gold without a hood.

Alright... I didn't think there were any 98+ Bseries with 5.0 swap.

Wow, sweet battery in that 5.0 engine bay^.


Katie, Let's see if one of us can't get a 5.0 in by the East Coast meet. I have access to one, could get it for about $400.
