    Price doesn't look that bad. $139 from intergrated engineering plus post.

    elring is an OEM supplier of head gaskets etc... I have one on my engine... HG is around 25, rocker 18, stem seals were 1.20 each when I bought mine, inlet and exhaust gaskets are 5 each plus there are a few other seals (cam seals too)... so quite good value... I think it may be missing the cam chain tensioner metal gasket and half moon seal though from the set I remember seeing... they are only a fiver from a dealer anyway..

    ...just noticed... the inlet gasket is small port so not much use unless using a transition phenolic...

    i thought it was good value. just unsure about a brand i've never heard of.
    pagparts do a similar set too, but obv subject to import charges.
    as for the inlet gasket, theyre only cheap so its no big deal.

    thanks for the info
