If the price was less than an OEM one it would be a no brainer for me. I would get one to have on hand just in case.

Oil pressure switch torque value

My oil pressure switch is leaking. I want to replace it to see if that fixes it. Seems like the best thing to do since the switch is only $20. I have a question though.

Very true, but I prefer an accurate speed over a perceived higher fuel mileage. Either way, I still get a lot better gas mileage than the Tundra or Land Cruiser (even when you add them both together!)

I recently had to replace the o-rings (#6 and #8) on my 04 GSA. They harden over time and generally lead to a little leaking. Worth the few bucks. Swap #6 during your next valve adjustment.
