    Check with Todd (silversti), he has forged pistons, rods, and BTW..have you considered sleaving your cylinders also? Sounds like you are headed down a power upgrade path, and it's the block in conjunction with the pistons/rings that are the weak spot at 400+ HP.

    I had my motor done by Magnus Motorsports. The use proprietary pistons, rods, and sleeved the block. The motor runs so smooth, the UTEC runs on the stock knock correction.
