ODIN,

The VCG bolts are a very low torque setting, so you really need a small torque wrench for these. You won't be able to use it on much else. The under $100.00 range of up to 150 ft/lb wrenches going at places like supercheap, bunning etc. are not very accurate below 15ft/lb. great for most other applications though! I got mine from Bunnings.

better not to get one from that store when it comes to precision tools. Its just like buy cheap tools from china but a bit expensive because of their brand name.

im planning to rebuild my engine coz its burning oil and it has a lot of blowby. I'm thinking to take off the head, oilpan, pistons and clean those valves for a better compression seal. Mates what do you think is the best torque wrench for this job? here is the list Thank you in advance for your advice.
