m/t on/valve price/interchange

I may have broken the on/off valve that cuts off fuel flow while coasting
in m/t equipped cars. This is the electric valve that's mounted behind the
airfilter box. How much should this cost? The dealer price is about $93.
Too much, too broken to salvage. If I get a replacement, I'm going to
remotely mount it. An insanely hard location to negotiate.

Would VW valves work? I figure junkyards will have the same part for less
if its from a VW. I have noticed a reduction in my MPG and engine braking
without the valve. Still, I can easily get in the thirties.
