I've used forged pistons in my last six builds in two years, all over 450 hp, two 8-71 blower 383's, using both moly and cast rings, gapless and file to fit, with no excessive oil consumption or blow by.

Curious what your end gaps and piston to wall clearances are.
Boost adds dignity to what would otherwise be a vulgar brawl...
