Why not get the valves only head and save $50? I have bought 2 of thats guys valves only heads, pretty easy to transfer everything over. If you buy the head gasket set (I bought the one off ebay for $65 and the gaskets are quality gaskets, Eristic is the brand) it includes EVERYTHING you need for a head job including the head bolts (just be sure the listing says includes head bolts), the Fel-Pro set is nice but does NOT come with head bolts and is expensive. Also check ebay or amazon for the timing belt KIT that includes the water pump, timing belt and tensioner. Dont forget antifreeze, oil and filter. If you buy the heads only head be sure to get some assembly lube for the lifters/cam when you swap them over to the new head. PS- my 02 SPI took a crap last week at 98k miles, just got it rebuilt and running this past saturday.

So -

Head gasket KIT
Timing belt KIT
Oil & Filter
Thermostat (head gasket kit will have new gasket)
