there was a discussion about this on another board so i took some pictures. They aren't perfect, just sort of a rough estimate. Kind of puts things in perspective.

my civic (1.6L):

Really puts things in perspective. You must have a lot of free time, really bored, or a combination thereof.

its funny talking to ricers and say cubic inches they have no idea how big 500 cubic inches is to 1.6 litres.

really. their engines are the size of less than one cylinder bank of the 500. Truly pitiful

Many of them are less than half of the Northstar even! Northstar is 4.6L. That's like two 2.3L L4s mated together.

Isn't it funny how a V8 less than 5 liters seems "small", but any four cylinder over about 2.2 or 2.3 liters is a "big" four cylinder??

:shocked:
