They (V8 STi and USDM STi) are NOT forged. It can be clearly seen in the lack of pressure-deformation in the grain of the broken piston.

The grains will flow perpendicular to the surface in a broken forged piston and it's very easily visible.

I'm surprised this thread has survived argument so long with such good data pointing to the change to castings.
