So what is the question? Is there any reason why you are changing all those engine components?

For starters VRS gasket set is a valve regrind gasket set and is basically just your top end gaskets including head gaskets.
What you'll need is a full gasket set which includes all gaskets and seals.
i'd consider throwing a cam in and make it worth your while if your doing the timing chain and shaving the heads
