After reading about this in another posting, made a point of noticing this
on my '87 Syncro. Yup. I can feel it stiff up about 3/4 of the way down.
The original post said there is a secondary throttle, akin to a sequential
two-barrel carb. Makes perfect sense to me. I imagine staying out of
this region might help the fuel economy somewhat.
