NightmareCB7 is cool... so far.
What you get in an eBay head gasket kit.

This is what I got in the mail today. It is a head gasket kit from eBay. I got it for just $36 when it was on sell. It has all the gaskets I need for the top end of the engine. I thought I would share with you all since there is a lot of questions on this kit and I will let you all know how well it works out.

Heres the link for the exact kit I bought.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/260773262338...84.m1497.l2649

Heres how it came in the mail.


Whats in it.


Heres a video on everything and comparing the new head gasket to the old one.

I've hear everything, but the HG is great.I bought a kit close to this but i will be using a 3 layer felpro these kits are 5 layer HG's.Good luck have that head trued up if need be and check you're block for warping with a straight edge.

I had a not so good experience with this kit. Same materials but a different car. Had it on my 2.4L Neon cause funding became an issue on the last of the stuff I needed. All those fibrous gaskets are absolute shit. They fall apart as soon as liquid touches them and then you end up with a not so tight seal between your components. And the head gasket didn't hold up to 10:1 compressing, 55 shot, and ARP studs properly torqued on break in. You'll also have to re torque down the bolts on you exhaust manifold every other week for about a month or it will leak. was a PITA on my Neon because the exhaust was buried in the back of the engine bay. That's all I have for complaints. Hope you have better luck.

I have always re-used the Honda exhaust manifold gasket without issue.

I just bought one of these also. I guess the one thing I don't like about the packaging is that it's not totally obvious which seal goes where. With Honda stuff it's all individually wrapped so you can cross reference part numbers to see what it is. With this I'm just going to have to take something off, look for the one that most closely matches it, and hope it works. I only bought this to get this motor running for a little bit though. I have no intention to run this motor for even 50,000 miles. Though I'm sure this gasket set and others would hold on if you were able to match them up properly to their intended location. When I get some time to start replacing seals on mine I'll try to compile a list of pictures with descriptions to help others out in the future with this. Unless of course that already exists somewhere.

Yea that the only problem with this kit. I was able to match the gaskets up just fine tho. Im very happy with the kit. Nightmare runs great now. I ordered another kit for the wagon so I will have updates on it soon.

Heres the first start up of Nightmare with this kit. Dont mind the tapping, its just the rockers cus the cam wasnt broke in yet. After the cam was broke back in I readjusted the valves and topped off the fluids, everything is great now.


Ill make another video on how smooth it runs now that it has some miles on it.

I had my doubts about those ebay junks. But I used them in 3 built motors so far. One is a integra running a solid 12.4, the other is a off roading toyota pickup truck, and the other one is just a regular honda motor.

I was impressed. Though the valve cover gaskets, id probably go get a better brand (at least in my kits they wernt that great).

@Accordztech

I bought OEM Honda for the valve cover gasket and when I got my motor from DA9B16 (Lee) he gave me a Beck & Arnley also. So I'm covered there. I have the same sentiment toward those valve cover gaskets. I may put the crappy one on there for a bit to break it in for a few miles and then open it up to check things out and readjust the valves. Then put the OEM one on.

I wonder why the f22b2 one costs so much more

I think this is the best deal.

I got the same kit and I will tell you now go and buy a Fel-pro intake gasket....The gasket where the runners meet the head....Mine was super clean and perfect and put it all back together and i had a big intake leak....The gasket is junk.....Once you get the Fel-pro gasket which is only 10.99 from Oriley's you can tell the differance.......I had to pull the intake off and do it again......I didnt use any other gasket besides the Head gasket and the intake gasket and the headgasket is fine....Just get ya a another intake gasket 4sure....

It worked good for me. You might have just not tightened it right.

Yeah....HAHA...I knew somebody would come back with that..or something...No I tighten it right....Started with the middle...Tighten in sequence,I just didn't like the paper thin gasket to begin with...Then it had no ring around the fluid hole either like the feel-pro and stock honda....All in all a crappy intake gasket....But i was just say'n i would get a new one not that he had to....All the other gaskets are fine and are the same as any, except that intake gasket.....I have worked with plenty of gasket an knew it from the start.....Mine was fine until I drove it too...I forgot to post that.....I guess it didn't like the 16psi of boosted im cramming in there
