  1. Go Faster
    Just got my rotating assembly together on my GE VVTI, Manley rods, pistons, ACL race bearings etc. Long story short I was putting in my pistons and aligned my rings according to Manley's recommendations. What I didn't see was the location for the oil ring expander (the spring between the oil...
