Strange a question was asked on www.corral.net Click forums them Windsor..About how many Miles before a blower was fitted some were over 100.000 MILES and still going well..Your model will have forged pistons as is.Is your engine R/S ??? Because at six to eight pounds boost the std compresion is o/k..Ford even sell blowers as a direct bolt on in the states and epa legal all states..
If the engine builder doesn't know or use a torque plate on these engines when honeing they don't know how to put a high performance engine together..Especially on little 5 Ltr blocks..Thin wall technology!!!Important on blown motors too for good ring sealing...hth...

It is hard to say in Australia. I think they stopped using the forged pistons in USA in 1989/90, which are the ones that use forged pistons. I was told that the EB's and ED's were the only ones that had them, after that they use standard cast pistons.
