Well, they are wrong. I guess rounding up looks better (on paper).

Well, then the manufacturer is wrong then but that's where the 227 cubic inches came from. Lol. You would think the manufacturer would know its correct displacement size. Lol.

Bucko, read the while thread, we already figured this out. The true displacement is 3.731 L, which is 227 cc.

There is a simple solution to this if you all go back to basics. Engine displacement is the volume of a cylinder multiplied by the number of cylinders. Don't simply convert 3.7 to cubic inches, do the whole formula using bore and stroke numbers from the Ford website and the standard formula for figuring displacement.

Hence 3.1417 (π) times bore (95.5mm) divided by 2 (47.75=radius/2) squared times stroke (86.7mm) times number of cylinders (6) equals 3.724317 liters. Now multiply that by 61.024 (cu in/liter) and you get 227.272 cubic inches.

227 cubic inches would be correct.

Fact: someone with a 3.7L Mustang did a bad job of calculating the metric to SAE rating for the engine.

Opinion: Calling it a Boss 226 is a personal choice that may not set well with some, but it is no one else's business. Personally, I would not do it, but a lot of mods that I have on my Stang get opinions of both type.

Fact: Naming an engine is as much a PR issue, as a engineering issue. The original 302 was designed to meet the requirements of the Trans-Am 5 liter class. GM had the 301 and 305 engines, for the same reason. The 300 straight six was slightly smaller than the 302 V8, but both are technically 4.9L engines. Since it is not practical to have two engines with identical sizes when they went to metric , and 5.0L sounds better, they went with that moniker. When Ford updated the 4.6L for better performance, they chose to size it up to a 5.0L to take advantage of the 30+ years of great reputation that the original 5.0L had.

GM also ran a 302 (Z28) in the Trans Am series. 301s were usually bored out 283s and 305s were rarely used for racing. Ford and GM both liked blocks with 4" bores allowing a great variation of engine sizes by changing out cranks with strokes of 1/8" increments. Today's metric 5.0s really have nothing in common with the older generation variants except for total displacement give or take a few cubic centimeters.

Sounds like my cars problem over the entire car. Factory paint. Will have it repainted when I can. The dealer already knows about it. I just didn't have time to do it then because I was moving in to college (Yesterday). So I'll do it during a break. Also will try and get a decreased value check or whatever it's called. If I do, and it's enough, I'll buy the Cervini Stalker hood.
