It's too hard to make predictions of engine life, either the original engine or a rebuilt engine with aftermarket forged pistons and looser clearances. There are so many factors involved, so many possible clearances to use, so many things that can make an engine fail.

I think what I wanted to do here is to debunk the idea that aftermarket forged pistons are always 100% better with no tradeoffs.
