LOL I sold truck parts to potato farms for a decade. What a moving obstruction does is alter the effective length of the pipe. The timing of the reflected exhaust pulse can be used to tune the scavenging. So the trick is to move the reflection point to match the instantaneous RPM. A stainless steel potato and a linear motor.. oh bother.
