the GXP is a 4.6 Northstar

This is a 5.3 engine with Displacement on demand..and i believe it'* the same basic block as the motors they put in the burbans, and silverados.

The Bonneville GXP is a 4.6 Northstar. The GP GXP is the 5.3.

1 liter = 61.0237441 cubic inches

so 5.3 * 61.0237441 = 323.42584373 cubic inches

Thanks I know what my GXP engine is I was referring to the GP GXP whoops.

The 5.3 used in the trucks used to be a different engine. Both are 5.3 thats all they have in common
