Post Ring Gap

Tried to do a search but couldn't come up with anything.

I am in the middle of rebuilding my 12' Pro with a Silber turbo. What is everyone setting their ring gap at?

Thanks!

Wiseco gives their rule of thumb however if the manual for the sled calls for greater, go with that. But keep in mind that's for a stock sled, throw a turbo on, you've got more heat now.... it's no secret engine builders increase ring gap for added heat from power adders. In fact my engine i went with ~28 thou. A little extra for safe insurance whether the sled didn't get warmed up enough for some reason or what ever.... never had an issue, you wont notice some compression loss (if there is any) its such a small amount but makes the difference.
