like he said...it depends on what the piston manufacturer recommends for your application....and they all like it different...pistons should have came with a gap sheet
gives you what they recommend times your bore size.....if not give them a call....

kinda thought this was basic common knowledge....

x100, just follow the recipe on the ring sheet unless you have experience that gives you wisdom to stray from the ring manufacturer recommendations. They will break it down by nitrous, supercharger, turbo, methanol, e85, etc.

Here's some examples for AP Gapless sets:
