2.3L in terms of CI

My friend has a 79 GMC with a not street legal 350.. and for fun we were trying to figure out what my 2.3L would be..

Is this correct?

2.3L = 2300cc

2300cc = 140.35ci?



In terms like 350 V8, I would have a 140 I4?


My powerhouse:


Ill get a pic of the 350 when I can

1 Liter = 1000 cubic centimeters.

1 liter = 61.023 cubic inches.

2.3 liters = 61.023 X 2.3 = 140.35 cu. in.

350 cu. in = 350/61.023 = 5.7 liters

The Duratec 23 is a 2.3 L (2261 cc) version of the Mazda-designed Duratec 20. Bore is 87.4 mm and stroke is 94 mm.

Just in case 1 MM = .03937 Inch.

So 87.4 mm = 3.44 inch
94.0 mm = 3.70 inch


Hope that helps
