Has anyone got any recommendations on piston ring brands for a fairly stock SC engine rebuild?

Should I go for genuine or over time has another manufacturer come up with something better.

The only mods on my engine will probably be 964 cams and SSI heat exchangers.

Thanks

My stock 3.2 was recently rebuilt with genuine rings. I'm no expert but I trust Porsche to get such critical parts right. The gurus will be along soon.

I was advised to use Goetze Rings and not to use Porsche valve guides as they are apparently all over the place (some in spec , some out of spec).

Goetze Ring pack x 6  £133.20 last year.

Speak with Chris's Flavell at Fenn Lane Motorsport

Thankyou for your replies. I will look into Goetze. And check out the guides too.

I agree that genuine should be best, but sometimes independent companies develop things further.

Chris manufactures his own guides to his specs because of quality issues.

I also recall him commenting on valve and valve spring quality and he supplied those. No more expensive than OPC or independents.

He supplied head studs way cheaper than possible via OPC or Indies.
