Cool, So the BP-D Does work. So I need the Transmission from the protege or an Escort GT? I found the wiring harness. Oh also, Axes /shafts from the protege?
Yup, can use them from the Escort GT as well. You could put in a 95-97 Kia Sephia 1.8L manual trans in it (same, but beefier), but you would need to use the matching mid-shaft and axles because the splines are different. Also grab the shifter assembly, it differs slightly from the wagon shifter. I would get the mounts as well, IDK which differ wagon/BP. If you had it disassembled, you could put the front sway bar and its mounts and bushing for a stiffer front end. You plan on changing clusters? If you have the 80MPH speedo, it will be off using the GT VSS. I assume the wagon is already a manual, otherwise you will need those parts as well.(pedals, clutch master and slave, line, mounts)

Sadly, my wagon is a automatic. so it needs to be converted to manual? I have to change the clusters cause I think it will go faster than 80 now :D, so I also need the computer off of an escort gt?

there is a few sensors that read differnetly off the mazda then the ford but its nothing that will hinder driving it. just the temp will read backwards and the fan may be on all the time. if you do this swap i can help you sort out the sensors.
