Pistons/Rings Ebay

Hey guys,

Can anyone confirm if those are the same type rings that are failing on the I4's? Or the revised type?

Are you trying to fix the 2.4L i4 oil consumption problem yourself?

It's not the failing rings that is the prime cause of the problem, it's the overheating pistons and not enough of oil circulation in oil control ring groove. I understand that revised pistons have 12 return holes per piston. You can drill extra holes yourself. There is a post with pictures how to DIY here: Piston ring life opinions - AND - now a build thread! - Page 4 - Toyota Nation Forum : Toyota Car and Truck Forums
