Lightning shortblock questions.

Are the 5.8L internals any different than "production" truck parts, especially the pistons? What year had the roller capable block, 94-95? Also, was the lower manifold always AL?

Fordpartsonline.com list a different piston for the Lightning. I was wondering if the base gets cast and the L gets hyper cast.

Thanks
