    So thinking I am going to go with one that's around 240.00. There's a couple of them. It's getting late & haven't made my mind up yet. One like this & there's a 5.00 off thingy that ebay is offering til the end of the month - https://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-TOYOTA...=item35cee1556f:g:s3wAAOxycmBS6V8L:rk:35:pf:0
    I really appreciate the offer though & it would'a helped you out as well. Money's tight & although getting one of the non-OEM kits wouldn't be smart, I can't quite justify spending 45.00 more since the parts in this one are OEM. I feel a little bad about this, but not too much since I am sure you'll have no problem selling it. Thank you again :)

    I think Rockauto with adding in the thermostat and taking 5% off with the forum discount code would possibly still be cheaper

    Thanks. I'll check them out. Definitely a thermostat, which is in the kit I linked, although I notice it has a filter, which I can do without. Gets a little obsessively nutty on my end trying to save a buck or two. Starts off worth the effort, but as it whittles down to compromise & literally one more buck or two, I can become "that" person who'll drive 40 miles to save .05/gal on gas.... well, sort of....

    Any of you guys been to Battista’s International House of Tacos in Pittsfield before? Popped up in my Facebook feed as a great Tex-Mex joint here in MA and was thinking of a road trip (possible M&G).

    Let me confirm the price I paid, the one I linked seemed expensive but I bought a while back. The more that comes with the kit the better if it hasn’t been replaced already.

    Not sure to be honest, could be VT with it so close to Stanford. There was another one from VT there. I drive by everyday I'll try to creep more, I just pulled over quick this time and snapped that.

    That's the exact set I bought previously. It is all OEM from a reputable seller and I paid 230 so it's down a little on price. I have it in hand and would take 200 for the set. Let me know if you're interested, no worries if you want to shop around or go with something else. It's sitting collecting dust so if you can use it, I will eat a few bucks to help out a forum member!
