The EcoBoost engine is not the same as the Duratech engine. I was referring to the EcoBoost line of engines, not the older Duratech line of engines.

The 1L EcoBoost (123HP) is a turbocharged engine which is cheating.
All EcoBoost engines are turbocharged. So at least 1/3 of Ford vehicles* sold in 2012 have turbocharged engines.

The engines I quoted are fuel injected but not turbo's.
So basically your argument is that it is rare to see high performance out of engines that have low performance designs?

* Some of the engines may be for non-Ford uses, but the ratio of engines manufactured to vehicles sold is 1/3.
