    The 355 for my old tonner was built with a decent spray of nitrous in mind. Ring gaps were set at 0.022" top and 0.024" second, as per TK's recommendation. This was with a Mahle forged piston.

    Yep, 1.5mm ring set. It is only 0.002" looser than what he would have recommended otherwise.

    What I set the ring gaps to last time was different to what I told people I did...

    I usually say on a 4" bore I go .020 and .024... In reality I did .019, .030 ...

    Paully's mission on here is for every street Holden to run a single plane.
    I'm coming around slowly. Probably any mild cruiser over about 350hp should have one.
