Red Line should be good I think it's what 6=8 uses. but for that price it's just a re-ring kit.

I would never just do a re-ring kit all that labor just for rings if you have the engine apart why not replace all the bearings oil pump and pistons if out of spec.

I got the engine from a roll-over jeep to replace one that has 200,000 and some lower engine noise in my grandsons 95 wrangler. The engine is a 96 and has 82,000 miles and looks in good shape, but wanted to install new rings, bearings, oil pump, timing chain, etc while it's sitting in my shop waiting for the change over. All specs on the crank,cam, bore is great. Just looking at the re-ring kit.
