Exchange rate, freight, duty and GST will add appreciably to your cost but there is no obvious local alternative.

In my opinion, the ducktail would be a mistake if you eventually want an original decklid. I've been there done that. Mine cost $2,000 to import, source the hardware, fit and paint. That's fine if...

I use 1/4", 1/2" and 3/4" torque wrenches. Then use a set of adapters to work between sizes e.g. I use a 1/2" wrench with an adapter to 3/8" to fit the Snap-on tool.

You want to get it to a temp where the thermostat opens i.e. gauge goes to 10pm then drops to 9pm when it opens. This allows full flow of all oil in the system.
