Horsepower depends on much more than just engine size. For example, a well tuned up 246 cc engine will have more horsepower then an old one. There are too many other factors for converting directly.

If it is a new engine then I am sure you can find data sheets for it someplace, such as the dealers website. You are sure to find both engine size and horsepower listed there.

Both are units of volume and you can convert between them on the Volume conversion page. Another common unit of volume for engine size is the liter.

You cant directly convert volume to horsepower But in your case, you have a 15 horsepower Briggs and Stratton engine, you'll just need to know the year it was made, then contact the Briggs and Stratton company and they will be able to tell you. Possibly a dealer could help too, maybe even their website will have that information.
