Question Re-ring Alusils? - I HAVE!!

Just pulled my first cylinder out (not completely) to discover KS marks (Alusil) on the bottom. This is something I'd not actually considered (for some reason thought all late models were Nikasil).
I've already got new Goetze rings but now ot sure whether to fit them. My motor's covered approx. 80k miles. Should I re-ring or leave the existing pistons/rings in place as per Waynes book? I've heard of successful re-ringing for Alusil but on higher mileage motors. Mine had great performance & good compression across all cylinders before strip down (due to valve guide wear).

thanks

Nathan
