So what I'm asking is since the cylinder walls are completely without wear, should I bother taking the pistons out and inspecting/changing the rings, or are they more than likely just fine. This is on an apparently babied motor (in a 2wd auto sedan) with 215k KM (129k miles).
Edit: I shoudl also add that this will be for a performance build. Ms&edis most definitely, self-made up and downpipes, intercooler, stock turbo. I've already started porting the heads after dissassembling and cleaning.

Yes, but it's a hassle, splitting the block's not too bad... I'd split the block it might take longer in the end but it'll be less of a headache. There's a thread out there about doing it without splitting somewhere...
the oil pan had some grunge in it, but the heads/cam covers were overall pretty clean as far as deposits go. A bit of an orange coating that wipes off pretty easy. Can I take the pistons/rods out without splitting the block? How big of a deal is splitting the block?

anyway it shouldnt be much hassle taking the pistons out to check the rings. but its one of those things where you could just leave it alone, and if you are going to get into it a little bit you may as well get into all of it and do a complete rebuild taking advantage o the opportunity
