Welcome to the Team Kelly!

Are you thinking of transplanting a General Electric J79-15A jet engine out of a 104 Starfighter into the car?

Just keying off of your user name.

With all of the Hollywood TV and movie cars running four foot turbine intakes, I have always wanted to mount a 780 shaft horsepower Pratt and Whitney PT6 jet engine used in general aviation for crop dusters, or in poor man business jets (that start at 3.1 million).

They weigh in at 230 pounds less transmission, and will fit in a suitcase they are so small (I could still put a four foot diameter air intake on the front of the car with some spinning turbine blades like they do it in Hollywood, along with the propane fired weed killer they shoot supposed after burner flames out of the back end). Unfortunately along with anything related to aviation they are not cheap even for a high hour engine in need of a rebuild.

Just thinking out loud as it were:
