Thank you Matt, I find the topic search feature here a bit fumbly at times. Good info on the squish info in that post as well. I’ve already made that adjustment with the gasket set. The piston I have is in fact the same as the picture you posted and the ring gap is indeed directly in line with the port. Also, rummaging thru my leftovers, I found a Vertex RS piston that also had the ring gap in the same location as the 2005 Honda OE. (it was seized in the piston of course, I hope that’s not a bad omen) However, all of the HRS all have the ring gap placed at 7 o’clock in the bridge. We’ll run the 05 piston and see how it works.
