Couldn't have said it better myself.

You can have a cheap piston and expensive piston from the same company. It's all in how you order it.

I should have been more specific on honing finishes. In my evaluation of various brands and platers, I found Ra finishes as low as 3 and some over 20 with Rvk, RpK,...

We tested the factory Mahle cylinders many years ago and I believe the lab stated it was 335-0 AL casting alloy.

The alloy used in Nickies is best suited for the 2618 alloy, but we have been...

No, I did mean to say one bar above minimum. That is how we set the oil level even on race cars. If it is above the minimum, there is enough in there.

That's not helping your problem. I've seen this happen before when people overfill the engines. It creates additional windage that puts a higher load on the AOS. I'd recommend filling to one bar...

It doesn't matter. The rods can go either way. Just make sure you put them all the same way so that the next person who rebuilds the engine that has OCD doesn't have a heart attack :-)

Another good test is a manometer test. If your AOS is good, it will also provide a indication of ring seal.

One plus is that you have a early 2.7 base model - other than IMS failures, they are...

The primary cause is the grease seal is rated only for 250F degrees and with intermittent 300F. The seal is exposed to oil that exceeds these temperatures that cause it to become brittle.

Scotch-briting the cylinders just deglazes them. You're not going to hurt the nikasil.

If you have access to an ultrasonic parts washer, that will do most of the hard work cleaning the parts.

I cut apart all the 1042 Frams along with all the other brands available at your FLAPS and Amazon. Wix and Napa Gold/Platinum are still the best.
