305/ 8 = 38.125ci per cylinder

231/ 6 = 38.5ci per cylinder

5.0/ 8 = .625 liters per cylinder

3.8/ 6 = .633 liters per cylinder

the numbers are close but i doubt if the engineering is the same like the 350 and the 4.3 are

You guys haven't been studying your 3800 history... It'* a Buick engine. Not a Chevy.
