Re: 2.0 TS piston removal.
I just had new rings installed after going through more than 1 liter per 1000 km. The engine used Selenia Racing 10W/60 and the oil change interval was 10,000 km. The rings were way out of spec and the piston tops had a bit of carbon on them, this on an engine with less than 50,000 km on the clock. Fortunately the bores were OK. Shoddy work at the factory I suppose?
I'm going to do 1000km of town traffic, highway cruising and mad sprints to see if the new rings have cured the oil consumption problem. I saw the workshop guys removing the head so that the pistons could come out and go back in from the top.
