Read through the sticky and didnt really find a firm consensus on whether or not to get forged internals when turbo or supercharging your ride. anyone wanna put in their 2 cents?

Give some more details. what are you planning on doing. turbo, procharger, how much boost you want to run? Most say you can run 8lbs and stay moderately safe.

I was gonna procharge mine this summer but decided to hold off because my motor has 90,000 miles on it. I'm gonna wait now and get a forged shortblock and build my motor to handle boost. If you plan on building your motor you might as well forge it.

well I don't have an fbody...yet. I'm waiting for spring to roll around to make a purchase but its gonna have no more than 90k on the clock, If it doesn't have it already I'm going full bolt-ons and ported LS6 heads with a mild streetable cam. Probably gonna procharge with no mroe than 10psi

The stock bottom end should live for a while as long you restrict boost to 7-8 psi & don't get greedy with the tune. Mine went a couple hundred pases before it expired one day in rather glorious fashion at about the 1000 ft mark.
