F*ckd...

When pulling my engine apart I kept EVERYTHING in order so I knew what part went were, somehow my pistons seem to have shuffled around and idk what one goes were... Am I screwed? Or can I still save myself without spending a extra 1k on internals.

Why didn't you stamp them? Tape them. Something to keep them in order?

Don't know about today, but in the old days, 289, 352, etc, Ford number-stamped the pistons and rods so you knew where they came out. Did you check for this?

Could I just get some low cost forged ones? And possibly rods too? How much would that set me back? I think Ssm is pretty overpriced, right?

There are no low priced forged internals.. Everything for the V6 is custom spec, SSM's setup is about right
