Meaning when all 6 ITBs are opening at the same part throttle position as the gas pedal was with a single throttlebody the acceleration curve is too touchy. By using a cam follower linkage, a custom cam can be made to increase or decrease the duration of the throttle. This would allow the engine to have good low speed drivability by having a moderate actuation of the ITB's from idle to the desired point.
I did a search for cam followers and didn't find anything that pertains to ITB's or Throttlebodies for that matter. I am hoping you could elaborate a little on what a cam follower would look like.
