We checked the leakdown after this event and it actually got better on a couple cylinders. The stock hone and ring combo takes a while to break in even when running the engine hard.

If it stays in good shape I'd like to leave it alone and keep it as a spare, but I will take pictures and bore measurements at a minimum when we put a built shortblock in. If it's at all questionable when we leakdown test it before pulling it, we'll tear it down and detail everything.
