Default Full Engine Gasket Kit? Possible 3SX group buy

Hey fellow hood poppers.
So as you all might know, the GTO is in the shop and looking at getting a full engine rebuild or atleast strengthening the motor with some fresh parts.

im looking to get the full gasket engine kit non OEM from 3SX (if not i seen the same shit on Ebay for less)
wandering if
a. anyone can save me the hassle and has a spare kit.
b. anyone is currently purchasing shit from 3sx and can have the kit shipped with their stuff to help save on shipping.
c. anyone knows where i can get good quality kits for less.

i kinda need to do this all pretty soon as the motor comes out this week and i want the guy to have all the parts ready to go so it takes less time to get the car back

Im not in Australia and this is kinda off topic, but I just want to recommend the felpro gasket kits. I bought one for my rebuild and everything was topnotch. They sell a couple different ones. I got the high end one. Its costs more than 3sx but the gaskets looked just as good as oem. If your interested ill look up the part number of the one I got.

I got this kit felpro HS26186PT

on rockauto find it under head gasket. This one covers the lower half. its 170 ish

Also got this FEL-PRO Part # CS26186

also on rock auto under conversion gasket. It the upper half its 30ish.

and if you search rock auto coupons on Google you get one of those coupon websites and rock auto always has a 5% off all order going around that you put in the cart for how you heard them to get 5% off.

RockAuto Auto Parts
They have other brands but felpro has really good stuff. Much better than ebay. I also got the turbocharger and head bolts from rockauto too made by felpro.

The Eristic gasket set I have which I got for a TT 3000GT was worth every bit of the $150 I paid delivered to my door. Hell I just bought two rocker cover gaskets and spark plug tube seals for $50 so for extra $100 you get a shitton more seals.

Just dont use or at least DOUBLE CHECK the lines in the cam/crank seals and use OEM gaskets for water/oil pump.

Head gaskets are pretty awesome.
