Default 4.7L=cubic what?

I was wondering what the 4.7l engine equels to in cubic inches? Google wasn't much help [X(]

I know the 5.2l=318 and 5.9l=360.

sounds about right. i divided 360 by 5.9 and took the answer of 61.01 and multiplied it by 4.7 and got 286.77 which rounds to 287...so ya.

1 inch = 2.54 centimeters, or close enough

So, 1 cubic inch = 16.387 cubic centimeters

and, 4700 cubic centimeters (4.7 liters) = 286.813 cubic inches, in the old math.

So, as the gentleman in the movie about Pearl Harbor says, There's your confirmation:-)

here is a way to roughly convert liter's into cubic inches.. I took 350 cubic inches and divided that by 5.7 cause a 5.7 is 350 cubic inch and i got 61.4

350/5.7=61.4 so then you can take 61.4 and mutliply that by any number (the liter's) and figure out how much cubic inches it is for example..........the 572 chevy bigblock.......572/61.4=9.3 liters

the equation also works in opposite order ^^^^^^^^^^

The problem with that equation is that a 345 cubic inch engine is also a 5.7L as is a 346 cubic. The liter system is less precise than the cubic system was so it is difficult to determine it. But anyways the 4.7L is a 287 cubic inch engine.

Yeah, the Liter was always less accurate, but just a quickie lil conversion is just to divide c/i by 61, or multiply L by 61, and then using some basic background info of who made what size engine when, you can usually get it right. That's what I've always done.
