.Heh... not what Honda or any other ring/piston manufacturer suggests, but ok...

Your helms manual should be able to help you in this matter...

The should be approximately 15 degrees off from each other... They shouldnt be directly at above the wrist pins or perpendicular to them... This will help minimize scarring and maximize effectiveness... Please reference the helms manual before trying anything like this as it seems like a disaster waiting to happen...
If you're into cars you must understand the golden rule: You have 3 words: Fast, Cheap, Reliable...
The problem is, you can only choose 2 of them.
