Apparently they are said to be the same, looks like they're not... any idea of the difference?

Yeah all BF F6 and 6T motors are made by Ford using the same parts.

Good news for BF 6T owners.

AFAIK, it started with the BFs. Means FPV doesn't need to build I6 engines, they're busy enough with all the BOSSes

aftermarket forged will be better and more than likely cheaper

lpg bas rods are actaully the strongest of the lost, im pretty sure they are the same as the f6, or the xr6t, something like that.
