3SGTE Gasket Kit - 0411174240 expensive and long delivery time

Toyota Castle Hill quoted me $523 and possibly a month to get here from Japan.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
 I don't even need the whole kit, just a top end kit..(Head off).

    If you are not fussed with going aftermarket over OEM, then there are plenty good quality VRS kits for 3sgte on Ebay. I have brought many in the past without issues.

    Thanks Carmikey, glad to hear that some of the aftermarkets are good enough.

    I have bought OEM stuff from North Shore Toyota in New Zealand at great prices. I previously emailed the parts guy Keegan directly at keegan@nst.co.nz Mention that you found his details on the MR2 Australia forum.
     
    Much cheaper with shipping then just the part in Aus.

    or if you set up a US mailing address from a freight forwarder you could save some cash doing that. Seems that part number can be bought for around $250USD ($370AUD) in the US plus some domestic and international postage.

    This kit might have what you need in it? Your kit suits a 91/92 gen2 3sgte and the one below suits a 93-95 gen2 3sgte (US spec so not gen3 3sgte) 
     
    I cant remember the exact differences in the two years but I'm guessing its something like EGR in the 93-95 set which you probably wouldn't need. Definitely worth investigating further I think.

    That same kit above is on Amayama for $367AUD shipped also

    Thanks MrS, hope you didn't spend a lot of time searching. I saw the top Amayama pricing and was surprised as usually they are reasonably priced. I do have a freight forward address in the US, so may take this option. For now since I need the car on the road I'll defer taking the head off to fix some minor leaks and wait until next 'engine out' and plan it better. Thanks for your help.
