Hi
Generally speaking most things are compared to stock parts. If the forged piston is heavier than the stock replacement piston it would be considered heavy.
If the forged piston is lighter than a stock piston its not a TRW.

How high is up?

Bore diameter?

Max RPM

Blown/Nitrous?

Duration of the running time per cycle of the piston
