Full Engine Gasket Set needed

I have a 1993 Mercedes 500 SEL (S500) with a 5 liter engine. Getting ready to have the engine rebuilt and looking for a full/complete engine gasket kit. Does anyone know where I can find it for sale?
I live (and the car is) in Mexico south of Cancun. I can have the kit ship to a U.S. address and someone will "mule" it to me. Just have to find it. Thanks in advance.

I am afraid you are out of luck.
About 15 years ago I was restoring 1969 Ford LTD and could buy set of about 150 pcs engine gaskets and seals for about $60. Single head gasket for older Mercedes diesel cost presently about $150.
I would start with calling this forum owner - German Star.
I am buying parts at local branch of A and F Imported Parts -- Home
They seem to have high internet prices, but if you call local branch and negotiate, you can get real deal.
