Daihatus earliest 3 cylinder turbo engine can be trace to 1983 Charade 1.0 Turbo, which come with the CB-T type of engine, this engine is basically is the same family with all the early Daithatsu CB engine for those Charade G10, G11, S70, S75 and G100, all is 6 valve engine until in the year 1987, a DOHC 12 valves of turbo CB-T engine is launch and this range is normally call as Daihatsu Aura Turbo in Malaysia.

I don't think Kancil L2 head can install into Charade Aura, even you want to install whole L2 engine into Charade Aura you need to do modification on the engine mounting side.
