PostSubject: conversions?   November 18th 2009, 12:22 pm

Is there a table, chart or a thread with info on liter to cubic inch conversions on here yet? We are having a debate over here on the mathmatical formula to figure that out and I cannot seem to find it....

you know, like how the GM 5.7l is equal to the 350 and stuff..... we are arguing over what the CI value is for a 6.8l V8. Anyone?

61 cubic inches in a liter. The debate comes from rounding. Because of the conversion factor of 10ths (as in 5 & 7ths liters) VS actual inches some overlap up to 6 inches can occur. For example, a Chevy 350 is a 5.7L, but so is a LS1 that displaces 346 cubic inches. As long as the tenths dont exceed 6 cubic inches, you can have two different cubic inch engines with the same displacement.

I'm assuming your 6.8L is the Ford V10 and I can tell you it displaces 415 cubic inches. I dont know of anyone making a 6.8L V8.

No. GM has a new monster V8 in the Sierra pushing 408hp and we wanted to know what the displacement was. I just saw the commercial for it the other day.... now I could be wrong, you know GM better then most people, they may have said 6.2l V8... see now you have me doubting myself...... LOL

that e85 crap is what gives it its power.. it gives you an instant 10-15 hp after you convert it cause its a higher octane. its almost like a 93 octane and race gas mix..

The 6.2L is a 379 cubic inch engine and is a beast. There are a bunch of different engine codes for it but it is used in the Camaro, Corvette, Escalade, The Denali series, and the CTS-V, its a true work horse engine.

Joe, the LS1 was 346 Cubic inches (5.7L) and production stopped in 2004.

E85 is roughly 105 octane but it has a lower energy content and is more corrosive then Gasoline. Like all fuels it has its disadvantages and benefits. Just dont expect to see me using it.

i know 7.3 is 444.xx and 4.9 is 300
I think a 5.0 is = to a 302

See, that is a great example of rounding. 302/61= 4.94 but because Ford already had a 4.9L (the 300) they didnt want people getting confused, and called it the 5.0
