If I had the time and was closer, no problem....
Okay will do now.

So I just came from the machine shop and was talking to them about the engine.

1. They told me they need the pistons, mainly the rings to finish the block. Does that sound right? I'm really with remembering sometimes, but it has to do with the gap on the rings where the ends come together.
2. They also wanted to know how much boost I was planning on running(told them around 15psi) and the compression ratio.
