okay iv got a d16z6 that im building for some boost iv got acl race bearings,vitara pistons,fjd custom length rods.. and for now im running the stock head nothing special asside from a adjustable cam gear

okay iv rebuild 1 motor before and i followed the haynes manual to the t about installing new rings but the motor smoked so bad after it wasnt funny

im wondering if anyone can give me some tips or possibly a very good right up for installing rings. what i do is purchase oversized rings and file them down to get a perfect gap..(this might not be necessary but i come from old school v8 rebuilds)

and to check the gap i insert the ring into the bore and push it down and square it up with the piston untill i get the right gap (gap according to haynes manual)

but my last motor smoked like a sive and im wondering if i did it wrong? and if there is someone nice enough to explain the whole processs to me so this can go smoothly

yeah i staggered em like the haynes says to do. it could ahve been the fact that the last motor was a d15b8/d15z1head combo .. but i dont think that would have made it smoke but it did run like arse.. when i built the first motor i wasnt aware that there was a front and back side to the rings..could that have been the problem? i had some in upside down to casue smoking?

ring tech at 6:00, not sure if it will help but may give you some confidence.
This Video gives you a Pretty Good Run Down of how to assemble a Block. I've been looking for something like this.
Rep for you. It's Handy even for me!

Brisk,
Good Luck with your assembly. See if you can take some Pics as you go. We would like to see that.
