Messing around with some before and after testing with seafoam and compression on my G10. The results are as follows:

Before seafoam treatment
110/98/117
After seafoam treatment
110/95/115

Those first two sets I mistakenly ran without wide open throttle. Took new readings with wide open throttle
147/126/155

I don't know what factory specs are, but I know that number 2 is low, so I ran about a cap of oil into cylinder two and tested again. Last reading was about 145. What does that tell me? Are my rings toast? How big of a job is that? Do I get into honing the cylinders and all that jazz? I probably have to pop the head for that too. Any insights would be appreciated.

Rings and valves.

Stock is supposed to be around 187psi and no lower than 165psi.

So are rings doable for someone that is fairly mechanically inclined? I've rebuilt motors before, but usually had the machine work taken care of at a shop. Checked out some videos on YouTube of guys doing some honing and explaining everything. Didn't look to bad. Any tips?

Easy job.
Pull the head, drop the pan, and do it in the car.
