    more pressure on bore walls + better sealing=more power - extra bore wear + time = less power. (like my analogy, lol).

    But im still savvy to lateral gas porting.
    sorry I did not,,, in your case I would consider them

    That seems a good idea. I'd be ok with that, of course you would look at what the associated costs were/are

    I think they around the $400 mark as a full ring set. No, not cheap.
