Honestly it is a perfectly fine rebuild kit. OEM is better but that is all solid decent quality parts. I would use oem parts myself but if your on a budget that will work.
If you look at the HG pictured at the back of #6 cyl water jacket (between the rear head bolts it has 2 triangular holes instead of Toyota's newer "improved" gasket which has 2 very small round holes. This is why I would use at least an OEM HG.

Great point, and thanks for the link. Wonder if Fel-Pro does that...
