    edit* David there are 61.023744 cu ins per liter, so your 8.1 liters is 494 cubic inches.

    wow! thats an engine! Is the cubic inches a measurement of the volume of the cylinder? I always thought cubic inches was a measurement of the entire engine block. Sorry if my question is naive or elementary.
