^^^ this. It is only the Pistons that are forged on the JCWs. Thought the same for the GP2s and that it was just a little tweak in the ECU and overboost that gave the extra power.

Really?!? Just the pistons! That's nuts. I thought they were fully forged.

Nah - this is why it makes financial sense to buy an "S" if you're modding for big power

Enjoy the week everyone.
