well, I finally got it apart today.
#1 is cracked. it's not in pieces, but it's cracked.
Also, the lower compression ring is cracked, and fell out when I popped it out of the motor.
The good news was that there was zero scoring, the rod bearings looked good, and the oil pan/pickup were pretty clean. (aside from some RTV scraps)
so.. a stone-hone, and wossners are the plan. I may have it done in '10, but I doubt it.
having the 9-3 means I donlt have to rush.
a couple crappy pictures:
