Mono Build Entry #11 - Intake Notes

One interesting, and certainly "Tasty Bit" of the Mono lies in the Cosworth F1 style throttle body. Instead of normal throttle butterflies, the cast / CNC machined intake features a rotating internal cylinder. The cylinder has openings for all four intake ports, and the size of the aperture leading to each cylinder is dependent on the position of the barrel. At wide open throttle, there are no butterflies to restrict the intake flow.


Half Throttle

Wide Open - Note the tapering, nearly straight intake tract and hand finished porting in the cylinder head! All very nice features, and a true mark of Cosworth quality.
