Hello there.

The way I would want to build this is with no seals.... I have had bad experiences with them...and as you say, it is an abomination in your engine..

The clearance should be over 1mm whith no seal, and this is actually a bit bigger than I would like.. about 0.9mm or 35 thou is widely favoured especially with high compression race engines..

This is the set up used in the 3.2 motors from the factory..

I daresay they cut the top of the new cylinder on a very small angle so as to make the compression exerted by the studs highest at the inner rim of the cylinder where it touches the head...about 1 or 2 degreees I believe.

If this is done, no lapping of the cylinder to head is needed...

Kind regards
