The formula I've always used:the one i use,

bore squared x stroke x .7854=A

A X #of cylinders= CID

PI*bore squared*stroke*# cyl

I'm no math major, but I bet somehow, the formulas are the same...

4.060 x 4.060 x 3.484 x .7854 x 8 = 360.83702823168

I have a 60 over 350 what ci would that make? Whats the formula to convert that.

Oops...

PI*

3.14159265*(4.060/2)=2.030 squared = 4.1209 * 3.48 *8 = 360.836184

Other method:

4.060 x 4.060 x 3.484 x .7854 x 8 = 360.83702823168

Diff between the two formulas = .001 or so for this particular bore/stroke/cyls.

Whe you use the PI formula you get the area of a circle by taking the radius R, square it and multiply it by PI.

If he has a 360 in his Ford I don't think you'll have much trouble beating him. When I drove for a F**D dealer's parts department, we had 2 pickups, one with a 360" V-8, the other with a 300" 6 cylinder--the 6 would easily outrun the V-8 turd!Told him 360ci was as close to a ford product as i will ever get.

True dat not really woired about a ford small block but he is a big block guy. won't touch it unless its a 460 or bigger.If he has a 360 in his Ford I don't think you'll have much trouble beating him.

Take bore squared by PI divided by four times the stroke times eight.

For a 350

4X4X3.14/4X3.48X8=349.6704

For a 355

4.030X4.030X3.14/4X3.48X8=354.935125

For a 360

4.060X4.060X3.14/4X3.48X8=360.2391878

Not if you bake it in yer black cast iron frying pan, like it should be done, then shes a Pi JRyep everybody knows pi are round and cornbread is square!

Ok, I couldnt help it, Ill go further only cause I love cornbread LOL Heat the oven to 400. Heat the black pan to hot. Mix up yer cornbread mixture, use what you like, Im a simple Jiffy dude myself. When the black pan is hot, toss in some room temp (so it melts fast and doesnt burn) butter, (YEAH butter, back off Pour the mix ontop of the butter and toss in the oven for 25 minutes. DONE. If yer old school its breakfast and you have a glass of milk (prolly buttermilk) there to do the deed. Geeze, is it breakfast yet LOL
