Question If I'm even thinking about it...

I'm putting in a new 5.0 by the end of the year, and to get forged pistons is only 250.00 dollars more. If I'm even thinking about forced induction, should I go ahead and get them? I mean, 250.00 is beans compared to a whole new engine. And another thing, would there be something else I might need like a neutral balanced crank, gaskets, valves? I'm getting 1.7 roller rockers on it. And I'll be replacing the tranny and rear end before I consisder SC/TC, so that won't be an issue.

If you plan on staying naturally aspirated and standard compression that $250 is a waste..Youde be better off without forged.

Going for broke!!!!
