The displacement works almost the same as automotive motors , it;s all about the bore and stroke . like stated above you can have a 427ci small block by over boaring the cylinders and a stroker crank. from the manufactures the Big blocks are big .21 and the Small blocks are small .18 and under, it's the after market that modifies just like full scale

It basically boils down to the engine's mounting footprint. A big block really is bigger than the small block where as in the 1:1 world a 455 Buick is just a touch bigger than a 350 Chev but a 426 Hemi.... now THAT'S a big block! :GRIN: As soon as you see an RC big block it will be obvious. Same with the small block. Much easier to tell a big block from a small block in the RC world. Good example? 351 Cleveland. Small Block? Or big block? I say it's closer to a big block with its size and big ports and valves.
