is it the top compression ring? if it is then you may have a pinched ring land and it's clamping the ring in there
I use total seal chrome moly gapless in mine. I probably still have the specs at home for the gap, but just too make sure, call total seal. And yours will be different than mine since youre NA. Search the web, the phone # is listed on their site.ezrollin said:I need the ring gap sizes. anyone? For a 2002 3.8L 3800 v6 camaro.
I was told that chrome moly would be too harsh on our
"lesser quality iron" blocks. I never knew my iron block was "lesser quality"
Wow, Jon, you might wanna check that whole chrome moly thing. Anyway, NA versus forced induction : if you use the wrong gap, you'll know it pretty soon after the rebuild. Yes, I got pistons also. Like I said, you'd be better off calling TS or even checking the Intense site for gap specs in the forged pistons section.ezrollin said:what does N/A have to do with it? Did you get pistons too? or FI?
"there is no such thing as chrome moly piston rings" you can either have "chrome" faced or moly faced or something like that...
I wonder if steel or Iron Is better?????????
For a 3800 build with 15 psi, what from below do I need to purchase?Time for some forged pistons and Total Seal gapless rings, then you will see 200PSI compression That's no joke :8
