    Hmm, as far as I know the issues with Ford EcoBoost are not the case of one litre but more of the 1.5 four cylinder. The one litre has been AFAIK pretty reliable engine.

    Affected both versions here but maybe a Ford UK issue. Those accountants love to save a few pence.

    3 cylinder engine should be smaller and easier to package in a competition car and allow for better cooling anyway
