Larry, the GM 6.0 liter engine (4.0"Bx3.62"S) comes out to 364 cid stock. With .030" overbore it is 369-370 cid. [ November 21, 2001: Message edited by: 2quick4u ]

The formula is Bore x Bore x Stroke x .7854 (Factor for PI Diameter) and that gives you the volume for 1 cylinder. Then multiply by 8 since that is the number of cylinders for the total displacement. Remember there is some rounding off for nomenclature since the numbers don't always come out even. But when converted from standard to metric it works out to about 6 liters.

Yeah we did. You wanna make something of it Pal?

I didn't notice to be honest I just thought I would share the formula for figuring displacement.
