    Default Ford's 1.0L 3 cyl ecoboost coming to USA (race car video inside)

    Stock engine puts out 123-125HP and 148 TQ and weighs in at 213 lb.
    ECU reflash bring stock engine to 145hp and 167 TQ, and Ford Formula car runs stock internals and get 200HP

    ECU flush sounds expensive.

    I was curious about the sound of a 3 cylinder. Found this BMW clip:
    -Anthony
    1991 Miata - Trogdor SuperMiata
    2011 Ram 2500 - all the torque
    2016 Kawasaki Versys 650LT - commuter
    2016 KTM 690 Duke - parked at the dealer

    Three-cylinders sound a little odd, but not choppy like a twin or thumpy like a single. I was a parts manager for a Daihatsu store during that company's brief foray into the United States and their debut model Charade was a three cylinder. Good product, but late to the cheap car party of the late 1980s and not enough marketing.

    The 16-valve four-cylinder that came out the following year was a rocket because the car was so light, but it was too little too late and Daihatsu went away. I still see a Charade every now and then and even the little Rocky SUV that it sold here, too.

    I wonder if they remove or reduce the counter balance to reduce rotational mass in the race versions.

    2012 Mazdaspeed 3 (Intake, test pipe, HPFP upgrade, polyurethane engine mounts, rear sway bar, Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires)
    2010 Mazda 3 (Happy as is)
