What ring set?

What piston ring sets would you guys recommend for 1990 G10? Saw on partsdinosaur.com enginetech set for $45 shipped, any opinions? or maybe a set from rockauto.com? Thanks. Also couldn't find the torque spec for the rocker cap nuts, anyone have those? Thanks...

I have Partsdinosaur piston rings for the motor I'm building as well.

rod caps = 24-26
main caps = 36-41
rear oil seal housing screws = 84-108 INCH POUNDS

NPR rings I've heard are supposed to be pretty good. There's a set of rings on ebay for $30.50 with free shipping HERE.

Thanks everyone. Chromemoly, is that the manufacturer or material of the rings? Read that on the bottom end rebuild sticky, but wasn't sure. Never mind, just found the answer to my question (chrome moly rings from partdinosaur) I don't mind spending extra money on a better quality, and lasting part. I tend to drive these things like a rally car, so every advantage helps.

Its the material, so far the cheap ebay rebuild kits I bought have come with the chrome/moly rings.
