This system placed in the hard wiring allows some buffering via the spring/diaphragm. Dont know about the one in the pic, but mine had an adjustable hollow screw in the base. The hollow bit is to vent the base to atmosphere and it seems you can tweek it to set various spring pressures - probably in accordance with the CPs you are running.
Thanks Alan, I think you're probably right-on. Again, this little gizzmo has nothing to do with boost enrichment. All that is taken care of on a 930 via the warm up regulator receiving a boost signal and lowering control pressures accordingly.

We continue to learn about different years and applications. That's what this forum is all about.
Mark H. 1987 930, GP White, Wevo shifter, Borla exhaust, stock everything else. The result of a massive Pelicanite good will fire recovery effort. Truely an open book, ready for the slippery slopes to modification.
