gasket kits

What do you guys think about buying full head gasket kits like this?
1997-2001 Honda Prelude Cylinder Head Gasket Set - Replacement

I bought a new motor to swap in and instead of finding and buying all the gaskets and seals separately I figured it would be easier to buy one of these kits.. But if they're just cheap junk then whats the point!

Re: gasket kits

Personally I think a gasket is a gasket, i have never had any problems. Know other things like bearing, oil, or stuff that has to be made to specs then yeah OEM.

and you don't think there are any specs that a HEADGASKET needs to be made to, like thickness, bore size, number of layers, material of each layers, etc??

the HG is one of the most vital gaskets in the entire engine. if you feel like cheaping out on such an important part such as that and it goes bad soon after install, that's gonna be alotttt of time and money to do that job allll over again.

You are wrong sir, well head gasket your gambling. Rings your going to fail. Only use Factory OEM ring and gasket kits.

Our motors have whats called FRM (fiber reinforced metal) Aftermarket ring kits will not hold up. This is why you always see people resleeving their blocks to do a motor build.

Re: gasket kits

If you noticed i said gaskets, or things that dont require specs. So things like a head gasket or rings, well I think those are within those "specs" kinda like things you should worry about. So if you read what I wrote then you might of got that part of it before you jumped on the gun there stud's.

goodluck on your rebuild though
