    Havring 4 Suzuki vehicles since 1987, they are a very excellent motor. All have had over 150,000 miles on then before replaceing and now own a 97 with over 155,000 and will keep till my NEW ELIO arrives and also a 08 with a v-6. None have never had a wrench used on them except lube and oil changes.
    I think that speaks volumes for reliability.

    well, for new engine development, elio isn't the only one looking for better gas milage. maybe this one might could be adapted to the performance version of the elio. This compact engine—which Ford Motor Company [NYSE:F] says is small enough to fit in a suitcase—perfectly matches the Rip Rod's tiny size. Ford hasn't disclosed any specifications, but the EcoBoost triple produces 123 horsepower and 125 pound-feet of torque in the 2014 Ford Fiesta. It will also be available soon in the 2015 Ford Focus.
