Forged Pistons??

Do the 6.0's have forged pistons or cast? I'm in the process of a rebuild, block decked and so on and needed to know if I could do rings and reuse the pistons since the cylinders just need honed. Thanks for the help.

Re: Forged Pistons??

I want to say pistons are fine in the 700-800rwhp range but the weak link is the rods. I would talk to elite diesel they seem to have some nice pistons that are coated
