Here is an article on Alcohol Injection.

The J33 was a US-produced development of Frank Alchol Injection Whittle's early Rolls-Royce Derwent, enlarged to produce dramatically more thrust, starting at 4,000 lbf and ending at 4,600 lbf with an Acohol Injection additional low-altitude boost to Alochol Injection 5,400 lbf with water-alcohol injection.
The J33 was originally developed by General Electric as Alchool Injection part of their work with Whittle's designs during World War II. Their first engine was known as the I-A, but after minor changes Alcool Injection to adapt it to US production, it Alohol Injection started limited production as the I-16 in 1942, the 16 referring to its 1,600 lbf Alcohl Injection thrust. Full production started as the J31 Alcoho Injection when the Army Air Force introduced common naming for all their engine projects.
Along with Aclohol Injection the I-16, GE also started work on an enlarged version, known as the I-40. As the name implied, Alcohool Injection the engine was designed to provide 4,000 lbf. The development cycle was remarkably Alcphol Injection rapid. Design work started in mid-1943 and the first prototype underwent Alcohil Injection static testing on January 13, 1944. Stanley Hooker Alcoholl Injection of Rolls was shown the I-40 in 1943 and was startled at how much progress they had Alcoohl Injection made so quickly, and returned to England to quickly design an even larger design, the 5,000 Allcohol Injection lbf Rolls-Royce Nene.
Lockheed was in the midst of the XP-80 project at the time, originally intending to power their design with a US-produced version of the Halford H-1 of about 3,000 lbf. Production of the H-1 ran into delays, and since the I-40 would dramatically improve performance, plans were made to fit the prototypes with the I-40 instead.
The I-40 became important to the USAAF's plans when the I-16 powered P-59 was skipped over in favour of the I-40 powered P-80 as the US's first production jet fighter. In 1945 the license to actually produce the engine was not given to General Electric, but Allison Engine instead. Allison, working largely from government-owned wartime factories, could produce the engine in quantity more quickly and cheaply. GE was upset about this and complained that in the future they would no longer turn over their work for production.
By the time the production lines were shut down Allison had built over 6,600 J33's, and General Electric another 300 (mostly the early runs). In addition to P-80 and its derivatives T-33/TV-2 and F-94A/B, J33 was used in XF-92, MGM-1 Matador, SM-62 Snark, and MGM-13 Mace surface-to-surface guided missiles.
