Forged Pistons on BACKORDER!!!!!!!ARRRGGGHHH

Everything has come to build the engine except the SuperTech Forged Pistons. 🤬 The rep said they will ship in 6/8 weeks. 🤬🤬.

I tried Lohen.co.uk, but the currency conversion would add $400, not including shipping from across the pond. Does anyone know where I can get forged Pistons for 15’ B48 MCS 82m 11.1 compression?

Why do you replace your standard pistons 11:1 with forged standard pistons again ?

So I can add more power to the car without worrying about blowing up the engine.

Ok, forged pistons have a higher temperature window, but if you replace them why not pick than 9,5 instead of the standard 11.0
The latest B48A20T1 generates 302 hp with that compression rate, a good tuner can easily take that to 350HP.
