Whatís the idea behind oval bowl forged pistons? I understand they make for a much stronger piston which is needed for the cast version. But are people cracking the standard bowl forged pistons? Iím not being critical at all just curious if thereís maybe another advantage to the oval bowl that Iím missing.
