Standard Engine for the 1963 Oldsmobile Jetfire

TURBO-ROCKET Standard on Jetfire only... Turbocharged, fluid-injected. Aluminum V-8 construction, 10.25-to-1 compression ratio, 215hp, 215 cubic inch displacement, 300lb. ft. torque. Operates on premium gasoline - fuel capacity = 16 gallons. The heart of JETFIRE's high-compression Turbo-Rocket Engine is the turbocharger with fluid injection! Waste exhaust gases actually put power back into the engine by turning turbine blades (A) at speeds up to 90,000 rpm! The turbine drives the compressor (B) forcing additional air-fuel mixture into the cylinders. During turbo charging, Turbo- Rocket Fluid (C) is injected into the gas mixture to permit ultra-high compression for greatest efficiency. This turbo-charging action increases power by almost 40%.
