Default Need your input on gaskets,

so i plan on rebuilding my 1.6 over the winter and im looking for a decent gasket kit, theres a few different brands on ebay none of which ive ever heard of, has anyone has good or bad experience with these kits? any recomendations? I once bought a 1.6 turbo gasket set which was made by Federal Mogul, it was a real nice kit and they use to be all over ebay, now i cant find them. does anyone know where to find the federal mogul kits still? does anyone have a part number for the federal mogul kit??

Thanks

I hate to be this guy, but just get OEM mazda gaskets. I've never had anything but problems with anything but Mazda gaskets, especially radial seals.
