Hastings rings?

I have a new set of Goetze rings for my 3.3 Turbo build. The top and 2nd ring gaps are .014-.017". I'm not happy with that. Hastings make a ring pack for this, 97mm x1.5x1.5x3.5 . The top ring is plasma moly coated, hi tensile, the 2nd is cast, no coating. Another option is to use the Goetze top ring and use a Total Seal gapless for the 2nd groove. It is a cast ring.
This is a street engine.
Recommendations?

No Hastings rings for me, (big problems with Nikasil).........I'd use Goetze & Total Seals. The key is seating and if you have access to an engine dyno, that really helps.

Why would there be problems with Nikasil, the top ring is moly coated high tensile steel, the 2nd is cast? Total Seal rings are cast. I'm going to call them today. Looking at Hastings top and TS gapless for 2nd.

I talked to Hastings. Their factory gap is .014-.022" so no better or maybe worse than the Goetzes I have. So I'm using the Goetze for the top and oil and I ordered Total Seal gapless for the 2nd with no chrome on the rail.
