    sorry to hear that, are you sure the broken pcs are piston rings and not head intake Valve seat.
    which is more common with the earlier 5.7 engines.

    Curious to know if the damaged cylinder is number 8 to correspond to DTC - P2308 you had. passenger side closest to firewall.

    Good job on engine swap, fresh new engine and new fluids, make sure you take it easy until engine is well broken in insuring parts get seated properly. Thats why I hate aluminum.
