Normally everything in those kits but the head gasket is good.

Based on my experience with three different kits (Two supras)

Never use the cork gasket. FIPG is form in place gasket. Basically it's a tube of form-a-gasket. Can be had from Toyota or your local parts store.

I'm using the Ebay hg. lol. Works fine here. It's identical to the OEM hg... maybe some of the metals used in the hg might not be pure, but heck it's held up to 14 psi... so you can't really complain.

IIRC, Ishino is the OEM supplier for the Toyota gasket set. It is a very good set, much better than the Fel-pro. Like the Toyota gasket set, the Ishino is year and GE or GTE specific so you have all the correct gaskets with no leftovers.

Like Jeff said, Never use the cork oil pan gasket, just throw it away!. Use Toyota seal packaging 102 (FIPG) part # 00295-00103. < it's what is recommended in the TSRM but this is the new/updated part #. It's got to be the best FIPG [ Form In Place Gasket] I've ever used. I use it on everything now, even my Acura/Hondas.
It says right on the box: " For oil pan/ camshaft housing". I also used it at the block to front [email protected] top seam. It's easy to work with and sets up in an hour.

Well, after selling auto parts for 11+ years, I only use OEM gaskets and "The Right Stuff".. I've had a can of the right stuff for 2 years and it still works great out of the can (applies out of a can like e-z cheese). I've used several gasket sets and done a quite a few motors over the years, import and domestic, using rol, fel-pro, detroit gasket, etc, and had much better results and more complete sets with the OEM stuff, not to mention i've had better luck with a lot of OEM stuff compared to aftermarket oem replacements (sensors, bearings, suspension components, etc). That's just my .02.

The Ishino is definetly not the Toyota one. The oil seals are different and don't fit as good as Toyota. Buy the Toyota set if you want quality.

I paid $260 for my Toyota gasket kit back in April 05. It had a list price of $454. P/n 04111-42023 for a 92GTE. I had No left over gaskets/seals.
