I don't know anything about this company or the quality of the parts compared to the price of this kit. However, I figured I would share this after stumbling on it looking for something else, for anyone who wants to look into them further.

Egge has been around for a while. The gasket set is about half the price, and I don't think pistons are included?!?

Yes, it looked like there were no pistons in their kit.

Looks like the prices are too high. Rockauto has cam bearings for less. Connecting rod bearings and pushrods are cheap here though. Main bearings might be worth the investment if you can't find them on Ebay.
The gasket set price is ridicolous considering Fel Pro still stocks the gasket sets. The OEM gaskets are of much better quality, though. Not sure if these are OEM.

Good feedback on the comparisons.
