I'm running rockauto rings with excellent results.
I'm also running all gaskets, water pump, and timing belt off ebay with excellent results.

So have no fear

id buy a life time warrnty water pump from your local autozon or other mcautoparts, its the same quality as rockauto but you get a life time warranty and can swap them out with out a hassle, i would recomed the goodyear timing kit with tensioner and idler, if your going to do a crazy build buy the gates kevlar belt, and i heard the ebay engine gaskets sets are o.k. but there are certain one to stay away from, i cant remember over on clubprotege.com i think if you search "Ebay gaskets" youll get more info on it. or go with what ever 18psi got

here is the gasket kit im going with! its the one that the guy putting my motor together uses when he builds his own engines for himself. the engine that is going into the car is only temporary. once i get the car up and going, i will be getting i short block and begin buying internals and other goodies for it!
