Lokar is great, but I used Spectre on the last two I did and they were identical to Lokar, but cheaper priced. $35.99 at Summit and free hipping right now!

By the time you get done running around, chasing the connectors, firewall nut arrangement, etc you have spent beyond the Lokar black $39. Mr Gasket has a $26 version but that firewall adapter is pretty chintzy. Do your search here.
