Not too bad really in regards to the diff then. Still a 1.2k mod then "/ humming and arring at the moment as I want to get mine forged.

I think leaving it is a little bit risky in my personal opinion. A woman I know popped a cylinder and it took the head with it. I'd honestly look at what price it is going to cost to get it done against what potential damage it could cause, worst case.

 

Yh still expensive to do but apparently one of the best mods to do on these! With regards to engine damage In blowing a piston, yh it could take the head out and cause more damage, forging is 3k at least with mid range priced parts where as a used engine is 1200, so if I do blow the engine to bits then I’ll get a second unit have the parts of that and rebuild it, it’s all if and buts I know people are worried about these pistons but it’s like the RS head gasket issue it’s pot luck if it goes it goes sod all to be done about it so I have the same mind with my pistons, warming and cooling it down correctly oil cooler better colder spark plugs used correctly etc won’t have an issue at all

I have heard similar things and was told to it as soon as I bought the car by some ford specialists.

I know what you mean KMS do it for 2.8k which isn't too bad for both parts and labour but I do get where you are coming from! You make some good points but nothing makes my backside twitch like it so I keep thinking about forged before anything else "/
