cc to HP conversion

Hi Folks,

Looking at a Generac GP 3250 generator for emergency power use. It has a 207cc engine. Googled "convert cc to HP" and came up with "15-17 cc = 1HP. Doing the math, 207/15=13.8 HP? I had a 5500 Watt Homelite with a 12 HP engine. So, a 3250 watt generator with a 13.8 HP engine?

Is the above mentioned conversion applicable for small gas engines or am I missing something? I know that Generac is a good machine, but that much overkill?

Thanks for your time,

Roughly 17 cc(or alittle less 16.2162cc) = 1 hp..B,
