    the lsc mark 7 did get forged pistons like the 5.0 . the rest of the lincolns didnt, not even the regular mark 7 got em. ur best bet is to check it for forged pistons.

    unless the guys at stangnet are wrong, all of them said that early 92s got forged and than 92 and 93s got hypereatic.

    For $50 it might be worth buying nomatter what pistons are in it. If you have the place to store it, and it is in o.k. condition, buy it.

    hmmmm this is the FIRST time I have ever heard this :dunno: :dunno: Im going to check on this, because I know that the 93 was down rated from 92 because of the piston change......225hp down to 205 for the year 93 model.
