Default b20vtec build check and gasket set recommendations

Getting a B20z2 block rebuilt and throwing on my b16a2 head.
My parts list:
19200-P72-013 OEM water pump
14400-P72-014 OEM Timing belt
12210-PZ1-004 intake valve seals
12211-PZ1-004 exhaust valve seals
15100-P72-A01 OEM oil pump
12251-P8R-004 OEM head gasket
Koyo Timing belt tensioner
ARP rod bolts/ head studs
ACL bearing kit, rod, main, thrust
YCP 84.5 high compression pistons
Shot peen rods, rod resize.

I Still need all the gaskets for the engine. Should I buy an aftermarket set like this: https://www.ebay.com/i/131844448653?chn=ps&dispItem=1 or piece together and OEM kit? Anything I'm missing from the parts list?

i think all is ok. You should also mesure everything before rebuilding (crank/rod bearings clearence, piston-cyllinder clearence, piston rings clearence)

i would suggest also balancing the b20 crank.

that set is fine. Those front, and rear main seals are questionable. Best to get o.e. I have had ebay ones leak. Sometimes the dust seal portion of the seals don't even touch. Even get them that way from parts stores once in a while.

oil pump does not include oil pump oring so don't forget that.

also get the block oil pressure orfice oring
also get a 98+ gsr lower timing cover as your B20 lower timing cover will not work
get the rear main seal too


while your at it, get the 3 o-rings for the b16 head.. (middle cam cap, 2 vtec pins orings).
