Project Kancil: Halfcut Mira L502 Auto

Went to hurt for halfcut at Bukit Minyak and finally able to look for something that is within my budget. The halfcut that I took for is from the Daihatsu Mira L502 which equipped with a JB-JL 660 Auto 4 cylinders 16v turbo. Thought taking the L200s and the price for it is way too expensive for an old engine. Therefore decided to take a newer engine and hope there is no extra care for the problem that always faced by an old engine.
Why I am getting an auto tranny instead of the manual tranny. First of all, it is cheaper. Secondly it is for a daily drive car and auto is a best suit for it. Besides that, my girl friend does not know how to drive a manual tranny car. When I wish to drive manual and want to get something big from this tiny engine, I can always change the Kancil manual gearbox with the auto gearbox.

Here are some of the specification of the engine.
Engine Capacity : 660cc
Engine Code : JB-JL
Engine Type : 16 Valve DOHC Turbo
Engine Compression : 8.7:1
Engine Power (Horse Power): 64PS/7500RPM
Engine Power (Torque) : 10.2KG-M/4000RPM
Engine Ignition : Electric Fuel Injection
Transmission : Auto

Hi Forzad, I know that in KL you can get it at the price you mentioned. However in Penang really hard to find a nice halfcut with this price tag. Maybe you can share with me where you find your halfcut. :D

hi ben

need ur advise

i plan to change my 4g92 mivec gb 1.6 to putra gb 1.8 ; is it suitable?


Hi Vin,

Yes, it is suitable but do bare in mind that the gear ratio is different for both of these gb. Thus, your shifting point and lift will be different.


Hi~ Ben
Nice to meet you.
i want to ask you that where do you found the halfcut shop at bukit minyak ??


The halfcut shop is just opposite Bukit Minyak KFC.


hello .
Great posts all around! really enjoy the way you organize everything.

Hi, excellent info as always!

May I ask what code the gearbox is please?

I have the same engine but I can't find the code for it.
