do you know if the auto trans on the J100 and J102 are exactly the same?
I know the J102 has a DOHC KE-VE engine and the older J100 hasa SOHC
HC-EJ engine, both are 1.3 litre petrol.
I think I have found the answer to my own question AT THIS STAGE IT'S A NO, UNFORTUNATELY THEY Aare not THE SAME. the engine blocks appear to be different enough that they don't fit.. At least as far as I could tell from photos . I would still be intereted in some one who has tried to do it confirming this. my problem was confused by my 2000 model vehicle having the J102 BODY BUT J100 running gear. ~~!!! APPARENTLY a hybrid produced DURINg THE change over in around Oct/Nov 2000. THat's when the J102 model started but my engine is definitely an HC.
