    LOL!

    Indeed, they seem to be pretty expensive... You can buy the Schimmel short run manifold reasonably cheaply but it's apparently better suited to turbo cars although there is a small gain on NA motors..

    yes, the last couple ive seen advertised were quite inflated compared to previous actual sales

    some are put off by the need to remove part of the schrick to replace spark plugs, for me im not keen on their aesthetic look

    plus, the actual gains for £'s you get AFAIK makes it an expensive option

    combine one with cams, BMC, remap & free flowing exhaust then you can really get the advantage of the VVT function but again im not sure how much the shrick would add to that

    good luck with your hunt

    I've got a 2nd hand one in my garage, I bought some time ago, never fitted it.
    I started sanding it down, with the intention of giving it a polished look, but didn't get a chance to finish it.

    All the bits are there, and I have photos of how it all goes back together, plus a couple of new gaskets.
    Let me know if you're interested :-)

    I'm in North East London, so not that far from you

    Hi Joe

    Ah yes you're not that far away... do you have pictures of how the manifold looks now?

    Any more details on the schimmel in terms of real life daily use?
