J Series Upgraded Piston Rings

Sorry if you were expecting to find me posting upgraded piston rings. This is more of a question.

I found JE pistons that have performance ring, but do any of these fit ?

This is specifically to piston rings and not the actual pistons.

This is how I translated your comment

" Spend another $6k, blow your tires off and go nowhere"

$6k doesn't account for suspension or trans work"

LSThatch did that on a completely stock J32A2 longblock. Took out one motor with a rod thru the block when it overboosted I think. Second one had damage because of a 7600rpm burnout (stock valvesprings).

Now, unless he has made some other changes, (thread hasn't been updated in a while)I think he is still running a stock longblock with upgraded valvesprings.

Anyone know where to find, or have exact specs. for our piston rings?

I am trying to get slightly larger gaped rings from "Total Seal" to build a high nitrous motor.

Do you mean over gap as in technically too large for the bore or a larger gap between ring and bore?


I had a link about two years ago when i was thinking boost... may try to find it again. You intending to still keep all three rings?

Piston ring end gap, as rings "end to end". Essentially allowing more gases to escape. It does lower compression a hair but is said to help with nitrous engines.

Total seal has "gapless" compression rings that have shown to raise HP on V8's by 28whp. I believe they are harder on the cylinder walls. I'm not too versed on this topic though.

total seal rings are junk. As least form my experience. If you want to run larger end gaps, just get some OEM or hastings and set the ring end gaps yourself.

I just saw this so sorry if late to the party. I built 3 engines with Total Seal rings, none of the three seated and burned oil badly even after following Total Seals instructions and using their "special" cylinder lube. Ended up replacing with stock after a quick rehone and no more issues with any of the engines.
