I don't know anyone who has done that swap. A number of people have swapped the 1.5 or 1.6 engine into the Jimny so I have no doubt that the 1.3 swap will also be simple. Usually all the Jimny manifolds and accessories are used and the sump and oil pick up is swapped over.

Thanks yes, makes complete sense to me, as long as the engine block is the same, just swap stuff. I actually didn't think about the sump and oil pick up, but did think of all the other stuff above that could need to be swapped.
The 1.3 must be the poverty-pack option in the Jimny!
