    Engine Pull the pistons and crank or leave them?

    So pulled motor and tranny. Eventually going turbo but was trying to maintain somewhat of a budget. Cylinders still look good but motor was filthy. So.... do all seals put it back together or pull it apart and do bearings and rings etc. Cranck has zero play. 87 forged internals.
