Daihatsu Mira 550cc Engine

Perodua Kancil 660cc is so common in Malaysia, suddenly a customer look for the Daihatsu Mira 550cc cylinder head gasket, the cylinder head gasket is really same with the Kancil 660 cylinder head gasket, the only thing is the bore diameter, whereby the 660cc is about 68mm but the 550cc is about 64mm.

Fact of Mira 550cc EB engine from Wikipedia.

The EB-series is a 547 cc (0.55 L) version built in Daihatsu's Osaka plant in Japan, meant for their domestic market range of Kei cars. Bore is 62 mm and stroke is 60.5 mm, with a firing order of 1—2—3.Outputs range between 32 PS (24 kW) to 64 PS (47 kW), the maximum allowed for a Kei car. Power claims for the very earliest Mira/Cuore models are in gross rather than net, which explains slight differences in power ratings for the first few years. This engine has not been exported to any great extent, with Daihatsu's export models usually receiving the larger ED and C-series engines.
The EB-series was only ever available with an SOHC valvetrain and two valves per cylinder, as Daihatsu were late to adopt multi-valve technology for their kei car range. However, the EB was available with an IHI turbocharger and intercooler, originally carburetted but later with fuel injection. This is still the only Kei engine to have reached the 64 PS threshold with only two valves per cylinder. There is also a rare supercharged version developed for the Hijet Pickup, to provide extra low-down torque and allow for an air conditioning unit to be fitted and used even when heavily loaded. This engine was also used for an economy version of the Italian Innocenti Mini, until replaced by the later 660 cc EF engine.
The Daihatsu Leeza (often mistranslated as Daihatsu Risa) was a kei car with coupé styling launched in Japan in December 1986. It was taken out of production in August 1993 after having been largely replaced by the Daihatsu Opti of 1992. While having coupé lines, most of the Leezas sold in Japan were technically speaking commercial vehicles (with strapping points and temporary rear seats) to take advantage of ample tax breaks for such vehicles.
