I don't know of any kits other than junk on ebay.
However, I do know that TopLine has gotten some very negative reviews in the past.

autozone should sell one. if not you can buy a gasket kit, rings, pistons, and bearings for probably 400 bucks. you can go to the stealership too. that topline stuff is crap.

price isnt so much the issue, if i can find 3sgte rods, i may just buy rings bearings and pistons with a gasket set, and do it that way.

Hard to say, don't know all the brands of the parts, but the seller does not speak English too well so that may be one clue. Also look at their other items, sometimes you can tell if they are there just to sell mass amounts of junk or not.

there is also this one, i just dont like it cause they call it DOHC,

It is considered SOHC isnt it?

This one what, I don't see anything.
It's a dual overhead cam, just not true dual. SOHC only has one cam period. 5S in one true cam and one slave cam.

Again, the biggest problem is not knowing what brand of parts it is and how reliable they are.

I got the kit from the first link you put up, i asked to get it without the oil and water pump and he sold it for 175 total, very nice price. I have been running the car for about two weeks now and it runs smooth

Good idea, those are really the two most important parts. I would tell him to keep the head gasket too and get a metal one.

just spend the money and get the OEM gasket kit. but you have to get the oil pump gasket seperate. for some reason it did not come in the kit
