Everything from bottom to top, forged internals, different crank, heads, cams, everything and even the block in same cases and some people may say it isn't fully built unless it is supercharged or tubro'd

Re: fully built motor

Means that they arent cast parts. Forged parts are much stronger than the same part that is casted. Just like a billet part is considerably stronger than a forged piece is.

If you think about it, you're cramming metal into a much tighter area.

Not necessarily. Billet is from a solid block of metal, powderforged(not as strong as normal forged) is pressed together and less strong.

Sometimes forged is lighter than normal components because it's less about the metal and how compacted it is, it's how the molecules of metal are arranged. Get it?

The lighter metals not pressed together is called Billet as stated. But billet and forged are two different things. Forged are not lighter bullet is

Yes forged is much better than stock. Billet is better than forged. But 99% of people who build street/strip motors use forged. It can handle just about anything we can throw at it
