Default importperformanceparts & other rebuild kits

Has anyone used a rebuild kit from Import Performance Parts? The price for a B6 "Re-ring kit" is just over 200 bucks. That includes a full engine gasket kit, new set of rings and new bearings. This seems a little too good to be true which is why I want to check and see if anyone has had any good/bad experiences before I go and be a guinea pig.

I cant link directly to the page so you'll have to follow through the Mazda link on the left of the main page to get to the OEM engine kits.

Also, has anyone else purchased and used a complete rebuild kit? I'm trying to avoid buying parts individually and FM's rebuild kit is astronomical in price.

Edit: meant to put this in the Engine Performance section.

I'm pretty sure I got the engine kit from them..not rings though.

last time I bought through ebay and there was a lot of random/shitty gaskets. like the VC gasket didn't fit, but never had an issue with the IIP stuff.

I never even considered Ebay kits as an option. Glad to know you've never had an issue with IIP. I may go ahead and order then.

I got a bunch of stuff from IPP that I never used (valves, seals) and they were fine.
