Question Piston question

What year did they stop putting the forged pistons in the 5.0 mustangs. I am looking at a 1993 cobra and I was wanting to know if it had the forged pistons in it. Thanks. Andrew.

The last year of forged pistons was '91 or '92. The 93 cobra, including 94/95's have the Hyperutectic (sp?) pistons.

Reckon that means I'll have to dig into the engine when I get it, huh?

Maybe not... My friend has 109k on his '95, still running strong. If you start talking boost or juice maybe.

'93 started the aluminum hypercrap pistons.
They are a livable piston... they're just more sensitive than the forged, obviously. They can take a power adder of modest levels... such as 6psi blower (tuned correctly and treated correctly) or up to a 100 shot (also tuned and treated properly).
Get greedy with 'em and they show you the ugly side real quick.
