It says here that the Hypereutectic pistons replaced the forged TRW
aluminum pistons in 1993.

It should in 89. Midway 92 changed to hyper and all 93s. In 92 some
had a black oil pan and the others had either blue or grey. I don't
remember which was which though.

Re: pistons

I have a 1989 GT and the oil pan is/was grey. It is Ford blue now.

The '89s came from the factory with forged pistons.
