click on my username, view public profile, search for threads that I've started, you'll find a post I started about Ebay gasket kit.

Only 8 pages to dig thru, shouldn't be too hard.

Got a gasket set from Ebay for my Y8 Minime swap and I blew the headgasket almost immediately (a 3 layer metal gasket) despite it being torqued in order and to spec...

Its only $31 for a Y8 3 layer gasket from a honda dealership, don't think for one min. you will be 'saving money' when the OEM stuff is just as cheap directly from Honda.

it didn't just blow, if literally fell apart, and when it happened it pressurized my cooling system blowing apart the bottom of my radiator (And again, nothing was wrong with my radiator, this was due to headgasket failure):

I have always used head gasket from Autozone and Napa and never had any problems with it. I too also bought myself an d16z6 full gasket kit and will be using it on my build.
