Default forged pistons

i won a certificate for a set of forged pistons from the 48 hrs raffle this weekend from raw/axis performance. would they be worth the cost of the installation on a 2.5i? how much would installation cost? would it require engine management? if it's not worth it i'll just sell the certificate to someone.

i know you have to do a bottom tear down to get to your pistons... im sure its not cheap and prob take a few days. And if you are not going to boost your motor then i dont know what kind of advantage they would give... probably lighter than stock.. help with revs and if you plan on increasing your rev limit. Id do rods and bearings if you tear your bottom end apart to do pistons anyway. then you would be setup to make some serious power if you spent the $.

Unless you are raising your compression, no they are worth nothing powerwise. And they would have to be NA pistons anyway, which are ALOT harder to find than forged low compression pistons.
