Mono Build Entry #9 - Shiftec Valve Body

In preparing Chassis 0007 for placement on the jig, we have just finished installing the Shiftec Valve Body on the Bellhousing. The valve body controls the flow of air from the on-board compressor unit to the shift actuator, and also the throttle blipper.
The three ports which are directly facing the camera are, from left to right, Blip, Shift Up, Shift Down. Interestingly, with the Mono not being a "drive by wire" car, the blip function is performed by moving the outer housing of the throttle cable by a precscribed amount during down shifts.
