    GTX LTD have forged components?

    I see that someone here has the rude charger on an 05 gtx ltd........ I am just trying to make sure this model has forged components...

    I checked the mircofiche on the 04 and 05 and they have the same part numbers for the valves, rods and crankshaft... so i am assuming so?

    only difference mainly is the 05 is IC and the 04 is not...

    I think as long as you dont go HIGH boost or high RPM's you should be fine.

    Yes, compare part numbers of RXP pistons to GTX ltd pistons. They are different numbers, because I am right and Danny is wrong.
    GTX pistons are 147.00
    RXP pistons are 243.00

    Which GTX pistons you looking up? The 185hp SC with 8.1:1 compression ratio, or the 215 SC IC with 8.4:1 compression ratio?

    The 05 GTX Ltd. motor was the same as the RXP and RXT...
