    CP pistons arrived with eagle rods. CR 9.0:1, when setting my ring gap, Honda recommends: B16A2, Top ring = 0.20 - 0.35 mm
    Sec ring = 0.40 - 0.55 mm
    oil ring = 0.20 - 0.50 mm

    When turbocharging, should these measurements be alittle greater for increased pressure?

    Please give your details on your FI builds

    From past experience, I kept the ring gaps at oem spec. on a 551whp setup and never had any issues with burning oil or blow by.

    thks for your input!

    when tuning and breaking in the engine, which spark plugs would you recommend changing to?
    Is it necessary to change plugs after DYNO engine break-in and tuning is completed?

    NGK IX Iridium Spark Plugs? OR NGK BKR6ES-11?

    SPARK PLUG gapping?
