"CC" stands for cubic centimeter, as in building a box 1 centimeter wide, 1 centimeter deep and 1 centimeter high. That is a measurement of area.  "Horsepower" is a measurement of force, as in the force needed to raise a one pound object one foot in the air in one second. The two measurements have no relation to each other. So, no amount of cc’s can make a horsepower 

Typical new carbureted engine well tuned:

1 x HP per each 25 cc

Fuel injected:

1 x HP per each 22 cc


Hope this helps.

It definitely takes lots of HP to pop a wheelie on a car. I couldn't guess how many, but this guy has an assumption. He also explains how important is it for the cars to have training wheels from behind, light fronts and heavy backs. Check out his pictures.

As DV said, all other things being equal, it is a direct, linear relationship. But if the rain water blowin' all under your hood, You know that is doin' your motor good. Jay
