Well, at least your autocorrect is working. Wouldn't want any cuss words in here...
So, I'm going with the Bosch. I heard that too, about them being Chinese made from now on, but I'm thinking that's fairly recent. So, any Bosch products you might find will probably still be non-chinese manufactured.
I'll try to find a torque wrench, but last time I went to Oreilleys, they only had the big one, and they didn't want to let me borrow it for some strange reason. But I'll definitely try and find one.
So, it sounds like it's not THAT big of a deal, unless you undertighten grossly, or overtighten to where you break the treads. I get it.
I know that, for instance, with Cyl Heads I wouldn't want to just wing it. I've actually replaced one of those on an 88 Dodge Daytona, and I know not to mess with the pressures there.
So, I'll give this a whirl Saturday, if not tomorrow.
I'll post the outcome.
