I will ask the question on why you want them first?

They are only really needed if you intend running extreme boost pressures or high compression numbers with use of nitrous oxide.

Lot of people don't realise these pistons will make your motor rattle and be noisy on startup until they expand, this is the way they are designed and add some wear and tear to bores of your motor.

In general use conditions forged pistons are of no use or benefit over cast units.

Just wanted to make sure you were wanting forged pistons for the right reasons and not just following the flow :mrgreen:

You can buy a few different low compression ratios for turbo applications, and there are even more available if you change to a ba/bf rod length. As for high compression forged pistons, NO DICE! Nobody makes them I have just recieved my set of JE pistons, forgies, they are a 10.5/1 comp ratio. They were custom made for me and cost a absolute crap load. They are a nice bit of gear alot of customizing and redesigning went into them, i reccon they are worth the money. Unless you are looking to run boost or an extreme N/A setup i would say stick to hypers, you will save alot of money. If you are concerened about the strength of hypers get them ceramic coated on top that will help make them last longer.
