The whole point of the Ford 1 liter turbo is to gain MPG, sport bike engines are not known for their fuel efficiency. You put a liter sport bike engine in a car and it would get horrible gas mileage. Sport bike motors are awesome but there is a reason why a off the self technology is not being used in the automotive field, it does not work well.
