Piston ring sizes for stock 5.0?

What are the piston ring sizes for a 5.0L for 1994? I'm looking through the summit website and there are a ton of combinations for each ring type.

My plans are to re-hone the cylinders at home - do I still go with the standard 4.00" rings? I'm new to rings so please be easy on me.

Thanks!

If you are just doing a basic re-ring, you will need the standard 4.00" rings and the compression rings are 1.5mm thick with the oil ring being 4.0mm thick. I'm not sure what brand ring you want, but I know the part numbers for Sealed Power rings. The standard plain rings are E458X, and the part number for the moly rings is E458K. Hope this helps you out. Any other questions just ask.

I'm not sure that these rings will be able to take my 12psi of boost. What do you think?

Get some Sealed Power or Speed Pro rings. I read a buildup in which they used 1 of the 2 on half the cylinders and stock replacements on the other 4...they had 0% compression loss after the break-in whereas the stocks had some minimal compression loss.
