Icon5 Fried Rings

So the rings in my stock H22 are shot. i've been looking into a few different companies and types of rings. Not too sure about what rings i should run because of the FRM. I'm going to keep stock pistons as long as they aren't beat up. Does anyone have any good recommendations on companies or types of rings to use? Any help would be great. Thanks.

I did find these but i don't know if they are any good.

Re: Fried Rings

wow that looks like a lot of work. how did you test the rings? it is normal for the h22 motors to burn oil. not a ton, like mine burns about 1/4 quart per tank. have you done a compression test?

Funny you say that because that's what i was thinking when i found out. Funny thing is my friends already call me the mad scientist.


I new the rings were in need of replacement when i bought it. after some fun driving it started running really ****ty. pulled over and had smoke coming out of the valve cover and low on oil. pulled the plugs and 2 of them were soaked in oil. started it and it ran crappy but not as bad as when it was hot. switched the plugs ran it for 10 sec and they were soaked in oil again. Timing is dead on. pulled plugs and the bore were cloudy like the smoke coming out of the valve cover.

Re: Fried Rings

It's not just if the pistons are in good condition, but also the cylinder walls.
If there's any vertical scoring on the walls that you can catch a fingernail on, you need an hone at the very least, and as everyone knows with FRM, aint easy or cheap.

Yeah i know. I'm hoping that they aren't scored. i looked with a bore scope and they seem to be fine but the true test will be when i get the head off to have a look. If they are scored though i will probably just get a new engine but if not i'm going to buy that kit and try her out after a fresh semi-rebuild.

Re: Fried Rings

Mine will literally drip raw oil out of the exhaust when I rev it up. It doesn't help that the muffler/tailpipe isn't connected, so my exhausts ends right before my passenger control arm, therefore every suspension component is covered in oil. It's my valve stem seals because it has perfect compression and it really does it bad when the front end of the car is facing downhill. In fact, I drove it to Orlando, FL and back for a Wedding over the summer. In just under 2000 Miles, it burned through 5 1/2 quarts of Amsoil 10W30.
