I have a 2000 Metro lsi with a tired 1.3L that I would like to swap for a 3 cylinder. The 3 cyls. I'm seeing are early to mid 90's so I would like to know if this is an easy swap? I've read postings about the crank sensor on the later model and changing more parts to accept this. I'm guessing this needs to be done to keep the smog inspection people happy? Can the 1.0L bolt to the 2000 auto trans easily? Any other issues?
