I wonder whats so special about it.
I thought all slant 6 heads were the same, even the super six.

I'm guessing Industrial. I've seen a slant six in Industrial applications.

All of the aluminum 225s have “casted-in” iron bore liners and came with iron cylinder heads. Initially the heads had the word "SPECIAL" cast in where the casting number was usually placed (above number 5 intake/exhaust runners outside the valve cover rail). Later, a five-pointed star was used to denote the special head for use with the aluminum block, which had slightly smaller combustion chambers and tighter control of combustion Aluminum Block Sealing Surfacechamber placement to assure proper head gasket sealing. This was necessary due to the relatively narrow area available at the top of each cylinder liner for gasket sealing

With some work/right parts and math, you can get the leaning tower of power to scream.
