O-Ringing is common on boosted applications. You can get a machine shop to cut grooves and install orings for you for a good price, much less than buying that tool. You also can consider cutting the head for rings instead of the block, depending on if blocks or heads are easier to come by and ease of removal and installation.

yep, boosted applications use this a lot.  I had a buddy that did a copper HG on his turbo camaro... forgot the O-rings... Copper HG lasted about a month, but when it blew, it was lots of fun.  He was running an 88mm turbo and around 25 psi.  He was burning oil so bad, it looked like we were leading the invasion of nomandy.  Needless to say, the block was O-ringed the following weekend.
