el pio: yes, it's the same engine that is in the Mazda 6i

solaris: I noticed that in some magazine as well. I have only seen it referred to that way one time. Don't know why.

lets see: 1) the Mazda version is not a PZEV engine. Therefor the intake is not choked off with the sealed unit air filter. 2) The Mazda version has only one high flow catalytic converter and better flowing exhaust. 3) the Mazda version also has VVT (variable valve timing)

I was trying to find out if the exhaust and intake would swap over to the focus.
