    RXP internals into GTX SC?

    I'm trying to put forged pistons in my 03 GTX SC because i want to do some nice mods involving turning up my boost etc. My question is can i put RXP pistons in my GTX? If not does anyone make forged pistons? I'm not scared to spend money but at the same time i don't have much to spend. I'm planning on spending about $2000 on my GTX this winter in mods but i want to make sure i'm getting my moneys worth.

    I have the RXP pistons in mine but as Nils said you can use the JE Pistons...Come to think of it most of my engine parts are derived from the RXP...Cam...Valves...Supercharger gearing (7% more boost)...And pistons...

    I think the GTX SC Cam is the same as the RXP

    Yep, you are right Nils. I just checked it out and they are the same part number.

    Awsome. but one question. Are they serious about $250-$350 for one piston? I may be SOL if thats the case. I can't justify that.

    Stock GTX pistons really suck!!!...I dropped one allready..They are cast as opposed to forged....
    Funny that they are the same part # for the cams....I cant check but can you double check to see if the 03 GTX sc cam is different from the 05 rxp cam???
    I measured a slight difference between the two...

    The JE are under $800 for pistons, rings, wrist, pins and clips.

    I think the OEM RXP pistons would be a lot less than $800, complete.
