Question Total Seal rings

Discuss....
haha

Yes I did a search, Ive used them, but not for long term because unfortunately I overboosted and killed the sleeves. So not much to offer on experience with them.

Took Rifts' motor like 10k to stop smoking through them, if that is an indication how long it takes for them to break in.

I have them on my build. The more miles I put on it, the less oil the catchcan catches. (I'm close to 3k miles)
