I think I may have done in a couple of the rings but I firmly believe that some of them had been busted for along time. My car passed a comp/leakdown in the PPI with no issues. The cylinder with the low comp/leakdown we found was the only one which had a compression ring busted.

Bench testing the wastegate showed it was opening around 26psi fwiw.

There were zero issues with my ring lands when I pull the pistons and likewise with the cylinders.
