It did save a bunch of time and made the install easy. I can't remember what I paid for it but it was well worth the reduction of having to reinvent the wheel. The only extra things I did was paint all the parts flat black with high temp paint and use a Swagelock compression fitting instead of the one supplied. Why did I do use the Swagelock instead of the one supplied? I have used those fittings in my job for almost 20 yrs. So it is a bit of peice of mind.
