Well with brain-trusts like the Gimp and Jesper on board we should be
able to come up with some logical explanation ------- OR NOT

Everyone throw out your ideas on the question of the "Marvelous
Magic Mystery Cone"

Keep in mind that the metering plate it's self does nothing more
than allow air to flow into the intake based on the engine vacuum and
mechanically lifts the control plunger to allow fuel flow proportionately.
The quantity of fuel flow is a direct, one-to-one function of the travel
of the plate. There are a series of tapers inside the cone, that the air
metering plate moves through, that actually controls the amount
of fuel that reaches the injectors. As the metering plate moves past the
tapers in the cone the amount of air allowed to spill over the cones edge
changes and depending on the increase or decrease of the taper controls
the amount of fuel that actually reaches the injectors.

Now, knowing that the metering plate itself does not control the
exact amount of fuel that flows to the injectors. I am going to surmise
that the shape of the "Marvelous Magic Mystery Cone", in some way,
slows, speeds up or redirects the air flow. This either smooths out or
speeds up the reaction time of the metering plates movement. I think it
has to be some type of aerodynamic aid.

All ideas, scientific proof, or wild ass guesses are welcomed.
