From Toyota forums I have picked up that only factory and fel-pro head gaskets can be trusted, and even then the Fel-pro head gaskets were getting mixed reviews. Most people there had problems with erisitic gaskets, domestic gaskets, and a few I don't remember. They said the rest of the gasket kits were fine, just not the head gaskets. I assume you used new head bolts, ran a tap into the bolt holes in the block, cleaned the holes, LIGHTLY oiled the bolt, and used a head which had been properly checked or remachined.
