Looking at buying a newer or new ford Pickup. These Liter engine sizes are confusing. My 94 F250 has a 5.8ltr 351 in it. Can anyone tell me what size the 5.0, 5.4 etc motor sizes are. The salesman at the ford place said that the 5.4 was a 351, what gives???
Litre engine size divided by 16.39 will yield cubic inch displacement.
cubic inches times 16.39 equals litres
Let's try this.
302 * 16.39 = 4949.78. That's almost 5,000 litres, that's a BIG engine!
Divide that by 1000 and you'll have litres. Your formula should be Cubic inches times 0.01639 equals litres.[/quote]
Just take the liters times 61 will give you close enough to cubic inches.
example, my 6.8 liter V-10 is 415 cubic inches (6.8 times 61),
and my 4.6 liter Crown Vic is 281 cubic inches (4.6 times 61).
(Liters times 60, then liters times 1, and add together, and round up)
'05 F-350 4x4, V-10, 6spd, 4.30 LS, 18" rubber;
Farming; TRADED FOR A '12 RAM 2500 Cummins, 4x4, 6spd, 3.70 posi, 17" rubber and It's great so far!
A mental thing, Rover in 95 had a 3.9 litre V-8, in 96 it was 4.0 litre and both engines had the same bore and stroke.
To use a chart to figure engine math or litres displacement isn't a thing a true gearhead would use, like a power outage in a store, checker can't do the math. Modern times are called progress, I question that.
