Ecoboost in a Bird?

Just a thought 2 turbos 360+ hp hrmmmmm, sounds kinda cool to me and since the local ford lot moron drove a brand new f150 off the incline display thingy yesterday they have a new totaled truck with an EB engine and all the stuff a guy would ever need to swap.
Well everything but time that is...

No matter how good she looks. No matter how cool she is about your "stuff". No matter how great she is in bed, someone somewhere is sick of her crap.

I just want 2012 Focus's ecoboost for my Aspire.

1.6L, 180 bhp/180 lb·ft, and 47 mpg (in the Focus).

I think 180 hp in an Aspire would be "fun"!!!!

(If they offer the Fiesta with an ecoboost engine, that may become my next daily driver...)

97 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC (Chip'd, 3.73 T/L... so far... )
97 Ford Aspire (Slow, but getting 36 mpg (f'n Ethenol!! )
84 F250 Dually w/6.9L Diesel (7.3L IDI pending)
73 Mercury Cougar Convertible w/351C 4V (Partially Restored)
69 F100 LWB w/460 Engine
76 Glastron Carlson 23' Jet Boat w/460 CJ Engine

Supposedly 2012 = 2 door hatchback, ecoboosted, Fiesta ST (probably only in Europe though.... )

And if they put the 2.0L in it... yeah, pocket rocket to say the least!!!
