I have been looking and have not found any coyotes using gapless rings. Does anybody know of an example of this or have any experience with this?
What indicators did you have to let you know of this catastrophic failure?The issue, for me at least, would be the ring land area of the piston. I had my stock .009 gapped rings get where they were essentially gapless at about 7500rpm due to boost and heat and THIS happened...
Copy that. Thanks.The car wasn't pulling as hard as it was a few minutes before while racing 2 GT500's from a roll of about 60mph and I let off at about110ish. When I did, I heard an audible pop and the check engine light started flashing, the AC started cycling on and off and the engine sounded, smelled and felt like it had a misfire situation. I limped it home about 75 miles. You can read a little more detail about it here.

From what I understand gapless rings, go hand-in-hand with gas porting, because gas porting can give you a little less seal PTW for pulling in coming air. The gapless rings seem to give that back.https://www.speed-talk.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=35698
Gas porting has more merit.
