    forged pistons

    does anyone know if the 185hp forged pistons will fit the 215hp, i think i heard that the turbo setup is better on forged than cast pistons, as my number 2 piston is shot i may replace all three, so if i go turbo i've got them in, regards bill

    Bill, the 185 HP units have cast pistons. You definitely do not want those for a turbo application.

    Mega heat from the rude charger = mega detonation on that #2 piston

    note to self.... never run a rude charger without an intercooler
