Default Gasket differences between 95 and 99

I am in the midst of rebuilding my engine and got myself a 95 headgasket kit like this:

My question is what is the difference from a 1999 kit like this?

I understand that the headgasket is the same but what are the differences for the rest?

Thanks. I saw that link. But it is for the difference between 99 and 02. What about the difference between 1990 and 1999 as I listed in my link then?

think about the difference between a 1990 and a 1999 head gasket. You can do it.

The 1990 is when the protege started having a 1.8 I believe. If you look at the application list it shows it is for a 94-97 miata and 90-98 protege.

Honestly I wouldn't use that head gasket though. I would only use a Felpro or OEM gasket and Felpro can be had for $55. Everything else in the kit should be fine, but shop rockauto.com for your rebuild stuff and get good stuff for the important things like head gaskets, oil pan/crank/cam/rear main seals
