Right, you have a v8 3ltr engine and you put it in the following vehicles:

A big heavy truck

A sports coupé

A kids tricycle

Now the performance varies greatly, but you still call it a v8 3ltr engine. Its not a 25cc twin in a truck and its not a warp drive in a kids tricycle. The manufacturer, therefore, calls it a v8 3ltr.

For my landscapes and fine art photography:

Small correction, for the record, the V8 on the tricycle is not 3L, it is actually a 5.7L HEMI... there is no replacement for displacement, especially on a trike.
