Do you mean the 1.8 liter DOCH 16V 127hp Mazda BP engine? It was in the 2nd gen (91-96)Escort GT, Escort LX-e, Tracer LTS, Protege GT, and Miata for a spell. IINM, the current Miata motor is a development of it.

~1990-1994 Protege (not sure of the specific model as some had the 1.6/1.8L SOHC variant of the BPD8)
~1991-1996 Escort GT/Escort LX-E

~Later model Miata 1.8s
~Later model Kia Spectras

It's not rare like a 300SL gullwing but it is certainly the least common of 2nd gen Escorts. It is a 4 door sedan with the GT engine, just like the Tracer LTS.

Why, oh why didn't I see posts like this before I bought a 91 Escort LX with a bad transmission to put my crashed 94 Mazda Protege's tranny in it? I can't believe that just because my LX doesn't have a little "e" after the LX that I have to go out and BUY a tranny while I have a perfectly good one sitting in my driveway. :cry:
