The Oldsmobile F-85 Jetfire Turbo Rocket Engine 620221

The Turbo Rocket engine is a high output, sports car engine made for people interested in superperformance. In contrast to most supercharged engines, which have a low compression ratio to avoid detonation during supercharged operation, the Turbo Rocket engine operates at a 10:25-1 compression ratio and uses Turbo Rocket fluid to prevent detonation during supercharged operation. This new concept of a high performance engine in a passenger car ensures good fuel economy and produces sensational performance. The zero to 60 mph acceleration is approximately 8 sec, with even more sensational performance at 30 mph and above.
