    15f Cylinder Problems

    Any of you guys see this before? It looks like the top of my cylinder has the nikasil chipping off. I was splitting the motor so I could put new Carrillo rods and upgrade the valvetrain and I found this. It also looks like the chipping stops right above the last piston ring. The piston (MTC) is in perfect shape and the rings don't feel gouged or scuffed at all. Debating what to do next... buy a used/new cylinder, clean it up and run it, possibly see if some place can repair it. What are your thoughts? Thanks James.

    That is asking for detonation, langcourt and millennium plating can fix it, I was going to go through langcourt to bore and plate my 15f, the price was not bad either.
