Premium Parts on my Bone Stock 2014 GT?

So I have a friend who says that parts of my engine are forged and that I have "premium" shocks on my car. How can I tell if this is true, or is it even possible? He said you shouldn't be able to bounce the car very much if at all by pushing on the hood, and yet he did it to mine.

Well, parts of your engine are forged, but not the pistons; and their is different types of forgin' on Rods up from the stock ones. If you have a GT you don't have a Forged Build till you put in the hotter parts.

As for shocks, I don't think any "Bounce test" done by a Beer Bud will prove anything. You would need to stik a head under there and read a bar code part number. Certain packages had better suspension, but unless they are on your sticker I doubt you have them.

Drive-Way BSin' with buds is fun with friends but always take things with a grain of salt and lime

The lightweight aluminum cylinder block features cross-bolted main bearing caps and thick main bearing bulkheads for bottom-end strength. Optimized oil drainback and windage control improve high-rpm performance

Its a strong engine, and most say is good to 500hpr or a tad more on the stock parts,and a stage 1 super charger. But fully forged with better rods gets you into "Deep Space" HPR territory with stage 2 and 3 superchargers

Oh, BTW the rods are the "Powder Metal" forged type not the H or I beam Steel you put in for Stage 2+ built work.
Compstall, you cant "Put a chip in it" and you know that, so you must be Funin'
Chips for those that don't know are what you had to do before ODBII came out in 1996, before then just 'bout all beer dudes would say..."Engines' got a chip In It"
