Secrets Of Speed Society
Rocket 428 Speed Head
Important details
ON A DARK AND STORMY NIGHT . . . IT'S RUMORED that this is the very same speed head that "Flash" used to power his rocket thrusters for his exciting trip to Mars in 1936 or was it 1938?  On return to earth the enthusiastic crowd overran the space-port and the Rocket 428 was purloined from the engine room and forgotten until now.  While going through stacks of old musty " Space Agency" secret blue prints, The "Yappster" found what he was looking for. . .  And here it is . . .  Because you and I want to have more fun than the other guys!

110 HP or more is easy to attain if you know the "secrets of speed".
Chambers surrounded with extra metal to hold heat.
Spark plugs on side at 45 degree (prime default) produce more HP, than over the valves, with a best of class flame front.
Dual Spark ignition produces even more HP and cleaner burn.

The Rocket 428 Water Thruster Pipe adds a lot of interest and bling to your Rocket 428 cylinder head setup. The 356-T6 aluminum casting is designed to bolt onto the Rocket 428 cylinder head (an option that must be ordered ahead). If you go this route it will be special.  The WTP sells for $185 plus shipping. The pipe is pre-machined for mounting and ready to rocket.

The WTP fits other engines like the Ford V-8 60 and others.  This is a good fit for the Ford Powered Pietenpol aircraft too. It could be installed backwards too.
