The revised ring end gap recommendations for hyper eutectic pistons only apply to the KB line as far as I know. I say that the engine was run in detonation which if it is going to cause the ring...

Keep in mind too that ANY water cooled exhaust system will sacrifice power when compared to a conventional style header at least in the testing I've done on my dyno. I've seen an engine drop about...
