Sorry, 99 stock pistons, stock spec rings, light hone on cylinders. Spec was .004"in per inch of bore. They are installed already now, I ended up inbetween .016-.018"in on all four. Should work well for a street build. Hopefully:-)

For aftermarket pistons, follow the instructions. For stock pistons, follow the FSM.
