Performance rings are normally sized to require filing or grinding to give the desired gap. There are lots of variables that prevent the rings from being sized precisely out of the box. The ring manufacturer relies on the engine builder to adjust the gap for his specific setup.
a little ot, but have you had any experience w/totalseal rings? comments?
ps - about your tag line - do you really think the guy who invented the 1st wheel and the 2nd wheel were different guys?
