What is the PERFORMANCE difference between Cast and Forged pistons?
To confuse the easily confusable folk like you an me think the order of strength is cast is the weakest, then the Hyper then the full blown forged... Altho the hypers are recommended in certain apps.... Now its clear as mud, not to discount the TBC styles avail, in any of the three kinds of pistons.Why do we have Hyper eutectic, forged and cast pistons? Why not one type????
My GENERAL rule of thumb is...So for the most part, a run of the mill V8 with a cam and under 400 HP for instance, it wouldn't matter at all what style piston was used?
Am I eating this pie correctly?
