Forged

Okay have a few questions about forged internal car parts.

What are forged internals? I know you can have forged pistons, rods and crank, but why would you need these pieces forged? Why do they say that forged pieces are better for a track car? Is it bad for street car setup? And why is it more common for SC cars to have forged internals? How much does typical forged pieces cost? And are they worth the money?

Last question.. When I first joined this forum someone posted a link on a thread to a wiki site devoted specifically to BMW. Like a dummy I didn't bookmark the the page and now I can't find the site, any help please?

Yes I did a search only found threads saying " oh I have ____ part forged, blah, blah, blah, ect, ect, ect"

Forged parts are stronger than cast ones. Forged parts are made by forming a solid piece into a desired shape. Cast parts are made by pouring molten metal into a mold/cast which has the desired shape. Forged is good for any car. People complain about the cost. Forged parts are worth it.
