Lightning Connecting Rods Powdered or Forged?

I have seen may times on this and other sites. Some people say that the connecting rods in our engines are powdered metal and some say they are forged. I always thought that all the internals crank, rods and pistons were forged. Just does not make sense to me to have a forged crank and pistons then use powdered Rods. Does someone know for sure what type of rods are in our engines?

Thanks for the reply MRBBQMAN. I will try and find a copy of the SVT brochure somewhere. At least now I know they are both powdered and forged now.
