Are you running pump gas or e85 or something to that nature. Pump gas will run hotter cylinder temps but I doubt your rings will hit with 6 pounds of boost.
If you were trying to run 15 psi or something then I would go .020 top and .016 bottom my buddy ran that on a supercharged 302. Just remember the bigger the gap the more blowby.
