2.0S piston rings

Engine builders: what is the best piston rings to get for a 2.0S
engine.

- Deves
- Goetze
- Total Seal
- JE Proseal
- Mahle

Seems like there's a few opinions out there.

Please include with your recommendations a supplier, some of these
brands seem hard to find for 2.0S 80mm 1.5, 1.5 & 4mm application.

Since I am in the same position....or state of rebuild...I am also interested in the answer.
I have been leaning towards Total Seal, but their set appears to be just the one ring, not the whole set.
Can anyone verify this?

I've found a local (Australian) supplier for the Total Seal rings, now I
need to know if they are any good. Whichever rings I use will be going
on the original Mahle S pistons which have some wear in the ring
grooves but still within spec.

If I do go with Total Seal, should I be ordering the cast moly or the
chrome steel rings?

Andy,

I cannot tell you what to use since I have no idea about your usage & parameters and requirements. I can tell you however, that chrome-plated rings are more difficult to seat but last longer than cast moly ones. Further, they are a bit more resistant to abuse.

I'm trying to build a reliable stock engine for street use.
I want this engine to last as long as I do without needing
another rebuild.
