file fit rings or std. rings

I have a 400 bored to 4.185,and I was wondering which would be the best set of rings to use?I have built many engines,and all ran great,but I was told that it would be best to file fit all the piston rings,I've always took them out of the box,and put them on the pistons.Also what is the procedure for doing this,and tools required?I want to make the most power available for this engine,but if anyone has an idea on a low friction ring to use file or std. I would appreciate it alot.I will race the car and some weekend use.The compression will be about 11.1
