Z engines family

The Mazda Z-series is a smaller inline 4-cylinder gasoline engine ranging in displacements from 1.3L to 1.6L. They are the evolution of the cast-iron block B-engine.

The Z-engine has 16-valves operated by dual overhead camshafts, which are in turn driven by a timing chain. The block of the 98-02 Z5, Z6 and ZL engine is cast iron same as the earlier B series of engines.

Other Z engines have aluminum alloy block and head, with cast-iron cylinder liners. The block features split upper and lower block assembly for added strength and rigidity, special long intake manifold for added torque, S-VT continuous variable valve timing, and a stainless steel 4:1 exhaust header.

As of 2011, Mazda will cease to develop the Z-engine, to be replaced by the SkyActiv P-engine.
