Gapped the top rings at .021" with the second at .022", the stock gap was .010 for the compression. Hopefully this new gap will be enough for the mild boost that it’s going to run.

Hot tanked block, crank journals polished, king main and rod bearing, and new pistons with rings gapped for boost.

Luckily all the bearings were withing spec so no fiddling around with bearing sizing occured. Just waiting for the headgaskets and the engine can finished and put back into the car!
