Are there any difference in the Piston rings from the SVT to the normal Focus? I need a set of rings and most dealers don't have SVT rings so would Focus rings work too? THanks

they are considered gapless rings. well the top ring anyhow. instead of having a gap space for the ring to collapse, the ends of the rings over lap each other. with higher compression, gapped rings would have a lot of blowby.

What is considered gapless rings the SVT engine ? The SVT rings are the same type ring that would of come in your grandmothers 55 station wagon other then there in MM sizes

You lost me here to "instead of having a gap space for the ring to collapse," ?
