Default New Ford Engine

Ford plans to build it's tiniest engine ever

DEARBORN, Mich. -- It's going to be small enough to fit in a child's backpack, but Ford says its will be powerful enough to move a car.
The 1 liter three-cylinder engine will be the smallest Ford has ever produced. It will be an EcoBoost model, featuring turbochargers to pump up its performance.
"Some people would say that it's more suited to a motorcycle than a passenger vehicle," said Joe Bakaj, vice president of Ford's global powertrain division.

I think I agree with Joe. It might just work fine on a motorized bicycle !

I haven't been able to find any further info yet.

Does anyone know the mounting dimensions for this engine?
...I won't need the turbo(s) and efi. A mikuni should do well enough.
