215 vs 185 pistons
Can any one share their knowledge or experience (or even pictures) regarding the 215 vs 185 pistons? We all know that one is forged and one is cast... but what about their look. If someone was staring at the two engines with the heads off could they tell the difference... dome height maybe?
Thanks for any help,

I'm bringing this back up because I am in the market for some 215hp pistons. If anyone can shed some light on how to differentiate them from the 185hp version, it would be much appreciated.
Also... if you know of some "good" pistons for sale, please let me know (I need four).

Thanks Steve, this does help
Now, if someone out there has a similar picture of the 185hp piston, I could probably decern the difference by just looking at them.
Steve, the part number (420890246) is not stamped on the piston, is it.
