Cheap Torque Wrench??

I just found this at the Jegs website... if this actually works and lasts it's well worth the $25. Includes an extension and 3/8 to 1/2 inch adapter all in a nice case. I bought on for my Jeep and one for the truck.

Harbor Freight has those basically exact ones for as low as $9.99 on sale. I got a 3/8 and 1/2 for the jeep.

I have those also and had them tested at PMEL, they work well...

Yep that looks identical to the one I bought from HFT and it's a good one, far better than its price would make most think it is. HFT sells them for $19.95 but they often go on sale for $9.95. They come with a lifetime warranty.

When you have a choice, buy American.

Another vote for the Harbor Freight torque wrench. Well worth the $10 or $15 I paid for it.

i have the HF torque wrenck as well, but couldn't find an IN. LB. one there so I dropped 80 bucks at Sears for a Craftsman...

I think you should put a CAI, Headers, new muffler.. some high flow cats... maybe one of those trail jammer chips.. oh and a tb spacer... can't forget that. You will be passing prius' in no time, unless their accel pedal is stuck..
