I'm going to tell you right now that they are not going to build the motor properly, unless you know the technician and machine shop on a personal basis. Forged pistons require a closer attention to detail to achieve proper clearances, and that requires a trusting relationship with a skilled machinist. They will hone and drop in a set of forged pistons. This will not result in a much better motor as the rings will probably wear out sooner than you'd be happy with.

Either fix it and sell the car, or drive another car while you properly build the motor.
