While planning my engine balancing job, I have also decided to do a light overall. One of the topic is what ring choice, they are so many options out there. For a mildly built up Ford SB mainly used in street what ring type do you guys recommend (comp ratio is 9.24/1, pistons are Speedpro Hyperteutic type, 6500 max RPM, 98 octane gas, alum heads ):

* Plain Cast iron basic rings
* Moly rings
* Plasma moly coated first ring
* Total seal: , but do I really need it ?
Another question is:
* Drop in type or file-to-fit ?

Plain cast rebuilders ring sets work best on street applications. Sealed Power, Muskeegon, Hastings, are all fine.
