Dont think its a car problem but I just bought a 98 mustang cobra 110,000 miles on it. The guy told me it has an engine rebuild with forged pistons and rods with 8,000 miles but its not one of those super loud track only engines. Is there anyway to tell if he did get forged pistons and rods just by the way it sounds or drives?Im not a car guy so I cant open the engine and check myself. Thanks for the help

Do you
have the same problem?

Forged piston and rods are more for performance high hp mtrs. Now. If some1 can recognize the shape of what those piston top looks like or rods with special physical feature.U can sneak a boroscpe thru the drain plug and spark plug acess to identify it. But just listening to it --> not mechanics
maybe psychic friend of superman. Heh heh heh heh
