There was a 2.2L non-turbo made by Toyo Kogyo (Mazda) and there was the 2.3 turbo diesel that was built by Mitsubishi with some kind of involvement from Perkins. They are both gutless, but the 2.2 was painfully so. I guess the 2.3 was a decent engine and very economical, but otherwise not very noteworthy.

The Ranger forums have some info about them.
'72 Runabout - 2.3T, T5, MegaSquirt-II, 8", 5-lugs, big brakes.
'68 Mustang - Built roller 302, Toploader, 9", etc.
