#1 Engine tone beating under acceleration

I took my car out yesterday for a long drive and Im pleased to report that she is going very well. Pulls all through the rev range (went to 5.5k) and didnt miss anywhere. One thing that I am aware of is that the engine tone has a low frequency “beat” to it (circa 1/2 second). It is only apparent when the throttle is quite open (half to full).

Does anyone have an idea of what could cause this? I presume it isn’t supposed to be there. This isn’t new either and has been there for a while (years).

I have tried to ensure that the accelerator linkage is matched to each bank following the manual (but this isn’t easy to do). Advice here would be appreciated too. I will need to recheck this but is there something else that could cause this sound?

Check the engine mountings. Particularly the one on the RHS. This caused the rhs air filter housing to be touching the body frame.
