Sorry I didn't catch all of the story. True displacement doesn't determine bb or sb.

This can be argued forever.

Here's my take on the simple answer:

There are no more big blocks. Manufacturers don't build them as large anymore to save weight.
Small/big block is NOT from the cubic inches. Chevy had a 400 small block and a 396 big block. It purely based on the physical outside size of the engine really.

My favorite drink is actually Mead. I buy it all the time and it is cheap over here. You can get it at Medieval festivals, in the stores and at tourist traps. There are different types of Mead as there is beer.

i can fully agree with both these statements.

small block and big block designations for me belong to engines from a bygone era!

I would have guessed differently due to your name

I want to try it but I feel like I need a greatsword and full armor to get the full experience.

The thing about real mead is that it sneaks up on you. You start drinking more and more because it is sweet. Next thing you know you a walking a little to the left, then the right, then you need to sit down a bit. I see it all the time with newbies. Funny, but we all went through it.
