Any pics of the oil filter?
Is this a brand new engine or has it been used in anything else? Anyone know?
It was designed for the Mirage. It had to meet certain specifications to be built in their Thailand plant.
Yup... Mirage only.
The requirements for the Thai Eco Car manufacturing program aren't specifically for the engine - the car just has to meet minimu fuel economy target to qualify. (There's a displacement limit too, but the engine is below it.)
The 3a9x engine family has been use since 2003 in other countries,
Interesting - 1.1L 3A91. It doesn't look like either used the 1.0 or 1.2 though.
