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

Ben said...

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?


Ben said...

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.
