Actually, "cc" is a perfect substitute for "cubic inches", so long as the appropriate conversion factor is used.

For the amount of money he's talking about (especially as a % of original purchase price), I didn't want to short-change him those extra few digits, however insignificant they are. I have no excuse on the truncation vs. rounding error though. You got me there.
I mainly wanted to make sure he knew cc didn't stand for cubic inch and tried doing it without sounding like a douche.

If I ever got a grom a big bore kit would be very tempting but also make it not race legal.
