16V cranks are forged, only the OBD-II 2L 8Vs and, late (78-79) 1.5 LS got cast cranks. I have heard that the ABA's got forged cranks till the '95 OBD-1, but that some have found them in newer models, wether they were swapped I don't know. This information is conflicting depending who you ask, but what I have gathered seems to be the most agreed upon.

i kno that in an 0db 1 engine the pistons are forged and that it has oil squirters. i think the crank might be. not totally sure on that.anything after 95 with a 2.0 has all cast internals
