370 cubic inches = 6.06321368 liters

You're not going to call it a 6.06321368L engine, so it's rounded up to 6.1L.

The 6.1 bore and stroke are:

BORE = 4.055 in

STROKE = 3.58 in

To calculate the displacement of one cylinder its Height*Pi*radius squared.

The diameter (bore) is 4.055, so the radius is half of that or 2.0275.

To square that we multiply 2.0275*2.0275 = 4.11075625.

That takes care of radius squared. Multplying by pi is 4.11075625*3.14159265953 = 12.9143216356991774375.

Now muliply that by the height (stroke). 12.9143216356991774375*3.58 = 46.23327145580305522625 cubic inched per cylinder.

So mulitply that by 8 cylinders and you get 369.86617164642444181 cubic inches which is 6.06102063 liters.

369.86617164642444181 cubic inches rounds to 370 C.I.

6.06102063 liters rounds to 6.1L

Mystery solved (I think)

Now the resulting question:^^ Good enough for me was just wondering

Thanks guys

Why is the subfolder named: 6.1L / 372ci(2008 - 2009)?

DAMMIT! Now I have to start all over again.4.055 x 3.579

BORE = 4.055 in

STROKE = 3.579 in

To calculate the displacement of one cylinder its Height*Pi*radius squared.

The diameter (bore) is 4.055, so the radius is half of that or 2.0275.

To square that we multiply 2.0275*2.0275 = 4.11075625.

That takes care of radius squared. Multplying by pi is 4.11075625*3.14159265953 = 12.9143216356991774375.

Now muliply that by the height (stroke). 12.9143216356991774375*3.579 = 46.2203571341673560488125 cubic inched per cylinder.

So mulitply that by 8 cylinders and you get 369.7628570733388483905 cubic inches which is 6.0593276 liters.

369.7628570733388483905 cubic inches rounds to 370 C.I.

6.0593276 liters rounds to 6.1L
