They quite fussy on quality of what they stock so should be fine, worth asking manufacturer of a few items (such as wheel bearing, ball joints) if want be sure what getting though.

Customer service is excellent however have noticed that if ordering things like a pair of ball joints or a pair of wheel bearings you will often get 2 manufacturers instead of a matched pair.

Their rocker cover gasket kit is iffy, the gasket itself is excellent but the bolt holes rubbers are hollow so the metal washers deform even at run on torque, had to use oem ones.

Thanks for the feedback guys, unless I get any "don't order x from them" I'll get my order off to them later today.
 I'm thinking of renewing the clutch and brake cylinders aswell,I know gaz posted up quite recently a link for the brake master cylinder so I'll find that when ive got time, but what icp's clutch master cylinder like.
I'm doing as much as I can before the engine.goes back in :-D

Its possibly a blueprint part. In which case its probably a nissan part with the logo missing.

^ phone them & ask, expect it the same jap made one as ADL but ask to be sure.
If buying things like wheel bearings be sure specify want same NTN or NSK bearings.
Ball joints etc want likes of 555japan or matching retailer such as Solid Ace.
With rocker cover gaskets, cam, crank seals, valve seals it hard beat oem if want hassle free build.

Thanks again, feel like I'm gonna be saying that again soon :-)
Yep I'm doing ball joints,possibly CV's aswell.
I've had a water pump on my last engine from a motor factor and it was a Nissan part but had the nissan cast logo dremmelled off lol.

The brake master cylinder was ADL (blueprint) ADN15127 (D22 pickup)
local motorfactor or ebay will do um (£93 on ebay) tell that to your local factors & get them to beat it.

To be fair most basic stuff you will get just as good quality if stick to ADL & Solid Ace from your local factors. Prices can be better too if press the point & buying fair few bits.
ICP come in handy for few bits like sensors & steering arms as they oem, CV boots are good for price too.
