What baffles me here is how the Millennium Technologies cylinder plating could be honed wrong. Reason I say that is LN Engineering uses Millennium to plate their Nickies cylinders and they use the same JE pistons (or CP, or Mahle) that we would choose to use in our old cylinders. So the honing spec on the Nickies plating should be the same as the re-plating of the old cylinders, since both would be using the same JE piston rings.
But it isn't. We have our own standards Millennium uses for finishing Nickies and our in-house quality control includes checks for ovality, taper, and also surface finishes. Every cylinder gets checked for Rk, RpK, and RvK - not Ra.
