Hi I own a 1983 Mazda B2000 Pickup truck and I am trying to restore and mod it. I have searched and searched but I can't seem to find a roll pan for it, so I was wondering if anyone knew of a roll pan that would fit it, like a roll pan for a different model? If you could please let me know as I am in dyer need of this info.

It's an odd request, but call them up. The way to get this done is to call vendors even if they don't seem to have your part---they in turn give you suggestions, which gives you other suggestions, etc etc.

If I'm not mistaken that Model Year truck is the same as the Ford Courier pickup.
Ford's 2.3L Turbo engine should drop right in with very little modification.
The hard part would be doing all the wiring for the ECU, but you can try and locate an early blow-through carb' 2.3L Turbo engine usually found in '79-'81 Mustang Cobras, also some Mercury Zephyer XR-7's and early 80's Ford Thunderbirds as well.
Another option is to swap in a Ford 2.3L, give Esslinger a call and you can build up a hot 200-230hp Street 2.3L OHC engine.

for a 2.3 turbo to work you have to redo the engine compartment. it is eazyer to use a pinto engine. i know this because i did it to a 1979 mazda b 2000.
