The 2.0 L (1970 cm³) was designated MA Bore was 80 mm and stroke was 98 mm. This SOHC engine with a 2 barrel carb produced 103 hp (76 kW) and 123 ft·lbf (167 N·m). A more fuel-efficient 1 barrel version produced 90 hp (66 kW). Fuel injection was available in 81-82.

The FE3 was a DOHC variant of the FE. Officially called the FE DOHC, it was used in some European and Japanese Mazdas, but no American or Australian ones. However, it can be found in the U.S., Australian, and other 1995+ Kia Sportage. It can be fitted with a crankshaft from the F2 to produce 2.3 L Stroke, but there are numerous problems with this conversion including requiring aftermarket pistons. Engines with a black rocker cover are 1.8 L, while those with a gold cover are 2.0 L. There were at least six differant FE DOHC engines available.
A high-compression variant of the FE3 exists but the only truly distinguishing mark is the domed pistons inside the engine. Factory redline was 7000 rpm but well made examples with aftermarket engine management and better valve springs are seeing continued 8000 rpm usage.
2.2 L F2 - 2184 cc (86x94 mm) - Stroked 12-valve version of the FE. Found in the first-generation Mazda MX-6 and Ford Probe, 1988-1992 Mazda 626, and 1987-1993 B2200.
The B2200 featured the same short block with an 8-valve cylinder head. The valves use dual springs and the rocker arms contain hydraulic lash adjustors (HLAs). Using improper oil, oil filters without drainback valves, and storing the vehicle for more than a week without running may cause the HLAs to tick during startup. This tick should go away once the engine has warmed up if not repairs or other corrective measures may need to be taken. (1991 Mazda Factory Manual & Service Bulletin -- Kyrasis6).
The F2T is a turbocharged F2 with 3 valves per cylinder (12 valves total) and an air-to-air intercooler. Used in the 1988-1992 Mazda MX-6 Turbo and the 1988-1992 Mazda 626 Turbo, it produced 145 hp (108.126 kW) and 190 ft·lbf (258 N·m).
The 2.0 L (1991 cm³) FS was one of the last F-family engines. With an 83 mm bore and 92 mm stroke, it produced 130 hp (97 kW) and 135 ft·lbf (183 N·m). In 1999 the engine underwent several changes, most notably a distributorless ignition and was called the FSDE.

In Japan a higher-performance version of the 1993-1997 FS engine was offered with a distributorless ignition and higher compression ratio, known as the FSZE.
2.2 L RF - A diesel variant that used the same engine block as the F2.
The 1.8 L (1839 cm³) FP used an 83 mm bore and 85 mm stroke. Also known as the F8, it produced 115 hp (86 kW).
