just looking through an old road and track... about a 90 626, and i saw an ad for a 91 Ford Escort GT. A pic of the engine looks SO much like the 2.2L that i jsut had to ask .... same thing?
i know it has less HP, etc. but ist it the same?

Well, being a Mazda BP series engine, I would think that it's more related to the FE3 than anything. It doesn't look at all like an F2 besides maybe the VAF or intake manifold print.
I believe the turbo models of those engines put down some pretty good numbers, around 130 hp or so.

A friend of mine has a BP-turbo ford laser tx3 turbo awd (read gtx familia). The aussie delivered model is 114kw stock (150hp). The jap spec familia is something like 130+kw. There is also a GT-R familia with some better gear that is 160+kw (~215hp).

It goes alright, doesnt have as much torque and top end as mine. He has 2.5" exhaust, intercooler and about 13psi and runs a 93mph terminal where as mine with 3", chip and 13psi runs a 97mph terminal.

Unfortuately being awd he has all the traction :(

That's the B-series 1.8 motor. Same thing found in the protege and miata. Look similar, but is quite different.
