Will a set of std t bird N/A 3.8 pistons rings work on a thunderbird 3.8 supercharged engine? ? I have a new set of rings for a N/A t bird 3.8 and they are exactly the same size as the SC rings and if I can save $$ and not have to spend $75-$100 for a new set of piston rings that would be super. Any help ASAP would be greatly appreciated. Also has anyone used or have good info on corteco head gaskets ? Thanks

Unless you can verify that the rings are moly ductile iron as opposed to plain cast iron, I would not use them. There is a reason why the right rings cost more, just like the gaskets. Use cheap parts - get cheap results.
