I'm wondering with new rings can evo 8-9 pistons fit in to a evo 5 engine block?

I'm looking at putting some forged rods in to my evo 5 engine, not looking to run massive power (400bhp) so don't want to run forged pistons as such? As I've read the evo 5 pistons can't take after market rods ?

Any help would be greatfull

Only the evo 10 piston can fit an aftermarket rod with no issues.

You will need to machine the pistons to fit the rods.

Are I see, I was told that 6 pistons can take aftermarket rods but the 5 can't?

No bud, 4-9 pistons need to be machined to take the aftermarket rods. Plenty have had the rod job done to good results. You can keep your pistons that way.

Evo 6-9 pistons can be machined to take forged rods but Evo 5 ones can't.

If your looking for 400 bhp then get standard 8 MR or 260 rods and pistons cos they will be direct fit
