My 2 cents. Save up your money & go ahead & get forged ross pistons. Forged pistons can take a little more detonation abuse than the stockers. Say youre tuning & get a little detonation with the stock pistons. You could possibly melt a piston or blow a hole in one or 4. You got forged pistons & they can take more abuse & less likely to melt or burn, but it can be done. Think about it, youre about to spend some money on a rebuild. You know youre gonna be hot roddin this motor. Why not go ahead & spend a little more money to do it right the 1st time.
