    Default Just got myself a Corsa VXR!!

    Hi guys..just got myself a corsa vxr!!

    It has piper cross induction kit, stage 1 remap,Apparntlty all forged internals and the recirculation valve has been blocked, stainless exhaust etc etc..

    Im going to get a bore scope to see the pistons, how would i know if they are forged?

    Anyone know who the car belonged to or recognise it or who built it up? Name was Daniel miller i believe, thats what the guy who sold it to me said..

    Hey mate, lovely motor.

    Check the V5C for previous keepers for clues.

    You should be able to tell by looking at the piston crown.

    Standard ones have a fairly pronounced circle on the top about 5-10 mm in from the edge and usually an arrow stamped on them. All the pics of aftermarket pistons don't have the circle and are usually pretty flat/devoid of the arrow from what i've seen.

    It will really depend how gunked up the piston is with carbon and how good your borescope is tbh.
