Ebay gasket kits

Anyone ever use cheap kits like this?
Fit 00-03 Acura T C 3.2 MDX Honda 3.5 Head Gasket Set J32A1 J32A2 J35A3 J35A4 | eBay

Doing a low budget junkyard 3.5 build using only new rings to put CL-S pistons in the j35a3 block and new head gaskets.
I plan on using DNJ rings because the price is right, anyone have bad experience with these?
If anyone knows a good source for cheap head gaskets that work well let me know that would be great thanks.

Gonna just check the heads with a straight edge if they're within spec then no machining. Really trying to do it for cheap so far ive gotten the j32a2 basically free off a parts car i bought and made a few bucks off as well.
J32a3 i pulled bottom end from junkyard for 200$. Gonna plastigage the bearings hopefully its still tight enough.
Trying to get this thing in the car running for as cheap as possible. All the pennies add up.
Then ill have my original j32a2 out of the car to build another one if needed when i find another j35a3, its old enough to find lots in junkyard no problem. most of them there for tranny failures.
Poor mans sports car lol

Rock auto it is. Piston rings and complete engine gasket set for 200 shipped to Canada. What a fuckin deal
That might leave some money left over for cheap headers and a Zex kit

Totally agree. Trying to save a couple dollars could end up needing a LOT of work to pull things and do the head gasket again (or worse). They're cheap for a quality one.

eBay gaskets are hit and miss. Not worth the risk.
