i would imagine so as forge pistons are generally the same compression etc. normally the same as normal pistons just stronger.

I havent done anything yet lol, I was just looking into getting some total seal rings, I just want everything to be spot on, do you know if it had good compresson  before you took the block out etc.

Yes compression was good mate, you don't need total seals, if you really want to go for new rings, get them from wossner bear in mind you will need to hone the bores though.
