Not personally, but I've heard it's a bad idea. Had a friend's friend that used them and he said they didnt seat quite right. They ended up going out again in a few months. (unfortunately for him his water pump went a few months later and he had to do them again) I'd just get the gaskets from the dealership or maybe someone on here is selling OEM ones. The bolts would probably be ok, but someone on here must have used the kit at one point.

I just talked to the guy in Edmonton at the dealer and estimated $600-700 just for the gaskets. I told him sorry thats rediculous and I cant justify that much cost.

HOLY CRAP! Yeah, that's insane. I dont blame you a bit. You could probably get Cosworth gaskets for much cheaper. If they make them for the RS that is. I know they make the for the 2.5 STi block. Not sure if it has different coolant passages though.

im saddened that you didnt leave the front windshield sticker on. that would have been the finishing touch, not your pilot sticker.

If theres a crack that is in front of the driver obstructing his view then i fails. I believe theres a length spec too even if its not. Thats in nh anyway, im guessing its probably the same
