Powdered metal or Forged?

How can I find out if my '01 has powdered metal or forged pistons? I hear not all Super Duty PSDs have powdered metal rods, & I'd like to know if this is true & how can I find out.

There is an inspection hole on the block you can check to see. The website that has a pic and how too is down right now. They are actually called powdered metal rods.

A small chip wouldn't do it?

Ah, thanks, vital! "Powder coated" sounds cheap anyway. Do you know how long that websites down for?

All I'd have to do after the injector/turbo install is send the chip back to Tony, right? Then it'd be a big chip???

I just found this:

Forged or Powdered Rod Production Numbers

The valve cover sticker on my engine is worn off, so there's a # on my oil cooler?
