  • Lateral Gas Port Rings

    Anyone running these rings in their engine?
    I have not heard much about these rings however might be worth looking into for a street strip deal?

    Formerly the realm of custom pistons, now ring-seal can be increased by incorporating lateral gas ports into the top piston ring.

    we run them in classes where you cant gas port. Stock elim etc. Its better than no gas port, but its not as good as a traditional vertical gas port when done correctly. The other issue with them IMO, is the lateral port puts quite a bit of downward pressure on the ring, and ive seen pistons that looked like they had excessive wear. May have been a different issue, but it was in lateral gas port applications.
