    I don't know why everyone is all up on the ecoboost engine.

    not that we will ever be allowed to have one here

    at 7:22.XX there have been 9 faster road legal laps... but for a 1.0L thats pretty damn impressive

    Yeah I don't think it was designed to be ridiculously fast in a straight line. But it seems to corner well and would certainly make for a fun track toy.

    And yeah small displacement with a turbo has been done many times before.. but I think this is one of the cooler applications I've seen from an automaker.

    Werd. VAG and BMW are the only companies that offer small turbo's that deliver. The Hyundai turbo's don't and neither do Ford's.

    LOVE the 1.0 Ecoboost. I really want one to play with.

    Me too. I think they sound pretty awesome for a such a little engine.. and 200+hp out of a liter of displacement is cool no matter who manufactured it

    Boosted 1.0 making 200hp is nothing special.

    BMW does it NA with their 1000s bike

    The Japanese liter bikes have been in the 180-190 hp for years.

    Looks fun. Sound really loud. Open cockpit, little motor working hard, turbo squealing, cut gears. But who am I kidding? I'd love to have a spin at it.
