Though it was used in many different aircraft- for me it would just have to be under the hood of an F2G Super Corsair!!!

This is an actual automobile engine , available now at Sonny's Engines. It is a mere 1005 cubic inches, and comes in a street and a race version.
He says that he can make them bigger, but we're running out of car .

Only 1005? You're just over half way to the cubes of the R-1820, and nowhere near the 4360... :rolleyes: :ohmy: ;) :D

The thing about the R-1820 is you would qualify for Stude-powered at the SDC meet.

....how about a Studebaker engine starting with the letter "J"??

That would stump the judges. Studebaker built them from about 1946-1958 or so.

The bigger 'stump' would be getting it to a show...

They need quite a bit of runway.
(and fuel)

But it would give new meaning to the term "jet thrust"..... I worked on the B-47s big cousin, the B-52 in the 60s. I miss those days!! B-52s will be around for another 25 years or so!
