I had a list of Mods installed onto my 05 LGT. I was a victim of the original VF39 going bad (bearing). So i decided to do upgrades on my car while it was down. I got a list of things added and done, than off to the dyno it went.
A shop in my area while it was on the dyno made it through 3 pulls close to 300whp. However after the third they noticed a bad rattle in the engine and they went to expect it and now can no longer turn the engine over. They thought that it might be pistons, but its purely speculation. (lets get past the shop issue and the tune and focus on the pistons)
Basically, is this the type of situation where I go back to OEM pistons and risk this same incident or Forged? It will be a daily driver, either way I want reliability.

Just curious on opinion.
