I know I can get forged pistons just about anywhere but what kind of rods and crank were in the svo? and where could I find them? The svo i might be buying has a broken rod in it so the motor might be trashed don't know yet

All 2.3L OHC engines from Ford used the same crankshaft and connecting rods. N/A and turbo - all same.

Note the stock rods use a pressed-in pin fit. If you're gonna get a good forged piston, might as well update the rods to a bushed type with full-floating pins.

Then you get to choose whether to use a longer rod with a shorter piston or stay with the stock length/height.
