Why is it the VW industry calls a 78.8mm crank a 78mm, but still call 90.5mm P&C sets 90.5's and not 90mm?

Because I am no engine GURU, I had only heard of them as 78mm not 78.8mm, but then again, I am just a parts whore who will sell you whatever you tell me you want..... Shocked Shocked Shocked

Why not a 79 stroke? (If you're rounding it off to the nearest number)

By the way I have a SCAT 78.8 in my red car.

That's kinda what got me thinking about this, you called your engine a 2028cc, and it's ussually called a 2007cc by the masses. I have a Bugpack (USA made) 78.8x92, 2074cc in the blue car, (if you add the .8cc it would be 2095cc), but again the masses call it a 2074cc? No big thing, just something to make you go hmm.

When I am having my crank measured, I always want the extra added in... Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked
