    Every VSR I'd seen until the last couple of years has been around the £1200 mark.

    There are ways and means gentlemen , I purchased my car for 3k with a Shrick, you could always by a Rado on the market with a Shrick and source a stock Mani and then flip the car . I saw a couple with a Shrick for around 4-5 k , they probably sold for a lot less.
    Ah but the VSR was designed to be on the VR6 as standard and as such, you don't need to remove it to replace the spark plugs like you do the Schrick! Granted, its not particularly difficult to do but thats a poor design feature in my opinion.

    I wouldn't let that put you off a Shrick it's nothing major and sparks don't get changed that often.

    One thing I do wonder about though, what if the piggyback ECU failed would it be possible to replace this.

    The Schrick tried to balance the inlet runners front and back, big banana, smaller banana etc

    Really? Bloody hell I was hoping there’d have gone up a lot more than that. I’ve had mine about 6-7 years and I paid £900 (which was a bargain back then) so just assumed they’d be worth a fair bit by now. Then again it seems like nothing I own has gone up in value, everything I want has rocketed

    There used to be a company in America that made replacements, weren’t cheap but they were available. I don’t actually think there’s that much to them though, just a voltage trigger at a set RPM I think, so someone fairly clued up on electronics should be able to knock something up I would have thought.

    I can't ever remember VSRs being that low, do you mean VGIs?

    Yes It just controls the valve that triggers the round solenoid on top/middle of the Shrick that opens the flap that changes over on 4000 revs I believe , must also get the information from the ECU of the rev measurement, I believe you can program it to trigger the flap on certain rev readings, also the light changes colour on the piggy ecu when you hit the rev trigger for the flap.

    Here is a good thread of someone who just managed to buy the Shrick Manifold without auxiliary components, the flap was broken and he manufactured a new one and managed to source the Solenoid and valve off Ford I think .

    Another great thread on the Shrick.
