Yes, but those engines were NA. Now they are FI, so a larger difference in displacement plays no much role, except for throttle response, but that is no more an issue according to most; "turbolag is a thing of the past".

The I4 is to be a 2.2l I4, not based on N20.
Lighter with more power. Hmmmmm. I'll take that!
