What are some of your stands on the weight of pistons? I would like a forged for my engine, but a KB hypereutectic is so much easier, cheaper, and offers the perfect compression piston for my limited engine. I will not be turning My engine over 5800 rpms, and 9.0 to 1 compression. Thanks for your input!

Why would you want to run 9-1 compression?
