I am looking Ford Ranger, auto trans, 2.3L, 4 cyl, 2RWD.

Customer Question
I am looking for engines...
I am looking for engines for 2006 Ford Ranger, auto trans, 2.3L, 4 cyl, 2RWD. Ebay is claiming that the Mazda B2300 is the same engine, and is in this case its a couple hundred dollars cheaper. Is Ebay correct that I can use that engine in my Ranger?
