Total Seal Piston Rings - Gapless & Gas-Ported
We have worked together with the experts from Total Seal Piston Rings, to put together a selection of ring packages for our builds depending on whether the engine is naturally aspirated or forced induction. Utilizing Total Seals’ Gapless & Gas-Ported piston rings, we have been able to achieve zero % leak down @ 100psi of cylinder pressure!
In an N/A motor you will see a good increase in horsepower due to increased vacuum on the intake stroke.
The main goal in the case of a turbo motor is ring seal and minimizing blow-by as much as possible whilst driving off-boost with a big piston ring gap. Using a two piece gapless top ring will ensure your engine will last much longer due to no fuel contaminating the oil, or oil contaminating the combustion. On a boosted engine we tend to run larger ring gaps but because of this, it exaggerates the contamination issue. A gapless top ring almost completely eliminates these problems.
