Depends on what you need out of the kit... The Honda kit will include everything, like valve guide seals and such. But, usually the aftermarket kit only includes the head and base gasket, and you have to buy the valve guide seals seperatly.

oem gasket have extra "goop" applied in spots so they seal better between bolt holes(where there may be gaps).
