Cast iron rings with a moly inlay is the 'standard' moly ring. If you want to go up a notch, look for plasma moly rings. But in your build you really don't need the added cost of plasma moly rings. Now if you plan on using nitrous, that's a different story.

Whatever you end up choosing after doing your due diligence, be sure the machinist knows exactly what ring it is you are going to use before he does the final hone. If he says he doesn't care what rings you are using, pack up your things and find another machinist.
