ok i am not yet sure why or how but last night i was at a bout 5 grand in second and my flywheel decided to fly off and escape out of the bellhousing, there was an a$$ load of coolant everywhere, not sure if the block got hurt, but the bell housing is gone....anyways i have a parts car , 1991 n/t and i am more than likely just going to build that one and put it in , if my block is busted..but anyways can i use 2nd gen pistons and not forged pistons with that n/t block, i've herd that the n/t block has only 1 oil squirter per cylinder , while the turbo has 2.....i was told if i didnt used forged pistons i would burn the pistons up.....is this true?? or can i get away with using 2nd gen pistons......and one more >? are the n/t and turbo piston rods the same in 90 and 91? any help would be awesome.....thankx

ok nt engine have no oil squirters yes you can put 2nd gen nt pistons in it, as far i as i have seen when taking these engines apart, the rods are the same from turbo and nt so...

hope this helps and , try to run a search for the nt conversion threads, as they may be of help too
thanks so i dont need to worry about burning the pistons up?
not as long as it is in proper tune
