So it's time to button the engine back up, and I've a couple questions prior finishing everything.

1) I thought that chromoly rings were a great idea when I first started this build years ago, however, even now as I'm in the process of refreshing the engine the oringinal cross-hatching is still present. Should I tear it further down and replace the Chromoly rings with a standard set? This engine will be a toy, meaning I won't be putting many miles on it but will be running it hard.

2) I need a set of head gaskets, in my opinion I have too high of compression so I'm looking to reduce the ratio if in any way I can. What do you think of these head gaskets for my application: SUM-111505 ?

As always, I appreciate any and all feedback.
