SBC Piston Choices

Been looking in Jegs & Summit catalogs for pistons for a SBC 400 build. Which piston would be better for nitrous or a blower application and why. Neither of these are Hyper pistons, they are both forged. What is the difference besides the cost?

Speed-Pro Powerforged
SRP

Thanks

It would be better if you had part numbers...but I was just dealing with the first piston earlier today and I think that it is about 100 grams heavier than the other. It is a good value for a forged piston but not recommended for power adders.

not to mention the srp has better ring groove machining, sizeing, and weight balance.
