My experience with those is good so far but get a OEM headgasket.

I wouldnt put a waterpump/oil pump on my car that wasn't oem. they aren't exactly easy to replace if that fails. Id rather spend a bit more upfront for piece of mind later.

I wouldn't care about the gaskets, but headgasket/oil pump/waterpump Id go oem, and the timing belt Id go gates.

Find a kit sans the critical parts (water/oil pumps) and get Honda oem for the critical parts. Some Honda timing belts are Gates belts (says Gates and Honda right on it). I've found only Honda oem water pumps work well. The copies are designed way different and tend to leak, fail, not function well, cause heartache and make you hate yourself and want to die.

Id agree with this..
I have had some experience with the NPR stuff.. happy to report that they are ok to use.
No issues with them

npr stuff is made in japan, good stuff. Gates is made in usa and same people who make honda belts. Go with OEM seals, I had a bunch of felpro or timiken seals leak. Problem was corrected with a Honda seal. I did go with a bosch water pump and will see if it last until my timing belt is due at 260k. Sadly, the bosch wp is made in china.
