    I am looking for the specs on what the clearance should be between the ends of a set of std rings in the bore.

    Anyone got these details?

    Sorry I won't be able to give you actual specs because my values are coming from the chevy world. The folks at Kieth Black have said a ring gap of 0.032 (sorry to give inches) is okay and that you can go as high as 0.040 and still not have any significant compression loss.
