Ok. So fords Ecoboost system is sorta based on an inline 4. Did ford pick this Engine up from Volvo, and take the reins with it, or is it fords own version? I guess along the same lines, think the Ecoboost will retrofit a Volvo I4?

The 2.0 Ecoboost is basically a modified Duratec 2.0 with a turbo added.
Not 100% sure but the Ford 1.6 Sigma engine received similar treatment to become a 1.6 Ecoboost.

Both also have Direct Injection added.

Yep it is the Duratec HE which had been modded. Though it is actually only turboed version of the direct injection MZR from Mazda.

The 1.6 hay nothing to do with older Ford engines. It again is a new developement and is based on the HE.
