200 dollars more buys you the piece of mind of forged ones.. better to only have to open an engine once!

not sure you can bore a 1.6 out that far.

newb, forged pistons come with their own set of problems. the mazda pistons are very strong. i'd rock mazda pistons with strong rods.

Pistons have never really been the problem, the rods break before the pistons crack etc

well while i agree with the pit lab, a little detonation can destroy a ring land fast. but these are probably fine to 300+ rwhp I bet.
