How fast did that Jet run with the 308 ?
Hornet powered Jets are nothing new. They have been around from the late '50's and currently there are a few still around primarily as drag cars. I think the Record Holder Jet in Don Gartlis Museum turned around 104 Mph and it was declared Stock 308 Cu In.. (with 7x internals). Some modified the engine bay so well to fool Inspectors believing that Hudson actually made a Jet with the Hornet, which couldnt have been easy.....
Using todays Technology though with Stroker Crank, Camshaft, Weber Induction, Transbrake, and Turbo Trans it would turn much faster.
Incidently, for those that don't know, Gartlis Museum Record Holder Jet was sold about 2 Yrs ago to a guy that sold off all the Hornet Drive Train piece by piece on EBay. A real shame.. He called me once telling me that he bought it and was installing a new GM Powerplant to drag race, but Ive never heard of it being finished....
