HEAV­ENLY BOD­IES

911 Porsche World - - Product Call -

In this age of turbo ev­ery­thing, it's easy to for­get that not all nat­u­rally as­pi­rated en­gines are equal when it comes to throt­tle re­sponse. Some are more in­deed equal than oth­ers. When it comes to fuel in­jected rather than car­bu­ret­tor-fu­elled en­gines, then, the ul­ti­mate in throt­tle re­sponse is en­abled by in­di­vid­ual throt­tle bod­ies for each cylin­der. That al­lows the bod­ies to be much closer to the com­bus­tion cham­ber and re­duces the lag or time de­lay be­tween ad­just­ing the throt­tle and the im­pact of that on com­bus­tion. Porsche used just such a sys­tem back in the day on the 911 Car­rera RSR and the 911 SC RS. How­ever, Porsche no longer sup­plies fac­tory parts. En­ter Mit­tel­mo­tor in Ger­many. They're now re­pro­duc­ing the throt­tle bod­ies in full and the setup is com­pat­i­ble with the orig­i­nal so­lu­tion, al­low­ing in­di­vid­ual parts to be re­placed.
