Im pretty sure the more recent GM 4.8 is real close to 283cid. Ns dont know the conversion but it dont realy matter. The manufactures usualy ring it approximately sound enlarge anyway. For instance chevy 350 is a 5.7 but fords 351 is a 5.8 however a evade 360 is a 5.9. The gap in between 1 cubic inch on the ford and also chevy and also the gap between ford and dodges is 4 cubic inches yet theres only .3 differnce in the liters between them all.

You are watching: How many liters is a 283 engine

This i do know for sure on the GM engines.262 v8 = 4.3L283 v8 = 4.8L327 v8 = 5.3L350 v8 = 5.7L The C.I.D. Is rounded up and so is the Liters. For example the period old 350 is actualy only 349.3ish C.I.D.the old 327 and also the new 5.3 are the very same bore and stroke but GM desided to lable the 5.3 together 328cid my numbers might be turn off a tiny bit but as you can tell it no realy matter.Its like ATV\"s and also such, a 700 yamaha raptor ~ no a true 700cc engine its choose 680cc or something

I think alot of it to be marketing too, ns wouldn\"t put it previous Ford to shot and upstage GM by do the 351 (5.8) vs. The 350 (5.7). If it\"s one ci bigger, it have to be better, right?

Now the you point out it FORD realy crack me up. An initial they was always trying to have actually bigger displacments, now they have actually smaller displacements, with larger power numbers. Ns cant aid but think fords v10 is simply stupid, ~ no it like a 6.8L? or smaller even? Hell ns dot understand fords really well. There simply too many stupid concepts for me to store track of.

For every the nerds the end there... 1 liter = 61.02374409473 cubic inches 283cid = 4.638 liters305cid = 4.889 liters327cid = 5.359 liters347cid (LS1 IIRC) = 5.686 liters350cid = 5.735 liters351cid (Ferd) = 5.752 liters360cid (Mope-r) = 5.899 liters383cid = 6.276 liters400cid = 6.555 liters427cid = 6.997 liters454cid = 7.440 liters502cid = 8.226 litersand lastly 572 = 9.373 liters Of food the actual values will depend on the yes, really bore and stroke (the cid values room approximations/round offs)

The \"round up\" manufactures use is realy turn off then. Anyone knows the 305 in firebirds infectious diseases world fashion ams and cameros declared 5.0L as soon as in truth they to be closer to 4.8 exact same with fords 302.
