You could pm him and ask him...as far as I know he is still a member here. I couldnt tell ya how often he does or doesnt log on here though.Why does Timinator reccomend top gap at 0.022 and second ring at 0.018" when everyone else reccomends larger gap on second ring than the top ring. Is this a typo or is there a reason?
.004 x the bore diameter?First off! CS is right! check with your'e ring supplier. There are alot of factors that define what you should run. Nitrous, engine temp,piston type,RING type, plug heat range and induction. As I worked for one, the standard recommended starting point will be .004 to ,0045. which once you do the math will infact be in the area of what everybody is talking about. M
That's what I was getting at, but other factors may come into play. NOS for one. you are tossing a cooling agent into an already hot area and expansion rate may differ. I admit I am no NOS guy and don't know the results of the bottle but I will say I can never understand a wider top-ring gap than the second. Unless you want to vent to the crankcase and create the need for a puck-tank or Pan-evac! M.004 x the bore diameter?
