Do we or don't we

I was having a discussion with a guy at a car show about my ZL1 motor . I was under the impression that we have some forged parts in our motors. I did know we did not have a forged bottom end . But this guy was telling me that we did not really have forged parts . He went on to say that the top of our pistons have a forged plate . Anyone know exactly what is forged and what is not ?

Define "forged", and define "bottom end".

The crank is forged. The rods are sintered, which, depending upon whose definition you use, can be considered a type of forging - just not hammer-forging. Sintered rods are stronger than traditional forged steel rods.

Pistons are cast.
