Are the pistons forged or cast? I know the ver8 2.0 sti has some cast AL pistons that uses a new casting technolgy that is "supposed" to be stronger. It is probably just cheaper. Anyway I know the syclone and typhoon guys have a lot of trouble with hypereutectic pistons not taking kindy to det. That is why many employ water injection. Pretty much eliminates det.
Another who thought the jdm ver8s were cast...
Hope this sort of ends the whole forged non forged etc etc
Its not so much how much the pistons can take, the usdm sti pistions are not half as good as thoes forged ver7 pistons, its more does the jdm ver8 have cast or forged pistons.
