how good is the total seal gapless top ring kit for a stock 3sgte motor, any power difference when installed?

I seriously doubt the rings are going to make you any power...

but on a more serious note. Yeah, not gonna notice a difference.

i am rebuilding my 3sgte engine that i bought from st185, i stripped the motor already and all looks 100%, i am replacing with total aseal gapless top ring and comp toga gasket set, upgrading to a ct20 turbo, top feed fuel rail from sard and 1000cc bosch injectors from my 4age. what sort of power can i tweak the motor too?

With the ct20b, anywhere from 230whp to 330whp depending on supporting mods and boost level. At the extreme, maybe 350whp. 1000cc injectors are probably overkill, as it's unlikely for that turbo to outpower even 540's. But extra headroom shouldn't hurt. I will probably go to 850's at some point.

WTF were you using 1000cc injectors in a 4A for?! :eek2:

bought them from the states, it works wonders on my 4age turbo, excellent part throttle response and idle qualities, suggest new generation bosch injectors over any other make
