You don;t need forged pistons. Just get the blower and bolt it on.
When its all set up correctly the motor does not detonate under boost, therefore the pistons are not stressed.
You can make huge power with stock pistons and 5 to 6psi boost without fear of the pistons.
Cast are fine up to about 8psi as long as detonation is avoided. Thats a matter of specific set up.

When its setup correctly the motor does not detonate under boost. Just smooth, reliable supercharged power.
Lots of mis understanding and mis information on these roots supercharged motors.
This stock short block will serve you for many years and make huge street power at reasonable boost levels.

Save the 22cc D dished forged 350 pistons for big boost 10psi +.
(TRW-speed pro. Probe)

i bet the heads that are on this motor are more desirable than the 882 heads.
The 882 heads are worth more to you $sold off$ back to the circle jerks.
They need these heads. You don't.

There are much better smoggers to use as a start point and you already know how to port them.
