The actual size of the combustion chambers where the fuel is burned. Normally, the higher the cc's, the more fuel burned, therefore the more power.bhp is the actual horsepower put out by the engine as built, before attached to the car, which will be lower, as a nominal amount of horsepower is needed to turn the driveshaft and drive gears.t's just a way to compare engines.
