Interesting concept. However, Titanium has a pretty low flash point as it not as light as aluminum so I would be hesitant. Get a good set of aluminum slugs and you will be fine. Not to mention the Ti slugs probably cost about $5,000 or so.

Ti would prolly end up being forged...just get a good set of Forged Alumniums and you'll be fine...i can't see how you could use Ti as a piston. But hell they have done things i never thought they coul dwith cars.

We've used Ti Rods before (About $5,000 a set). Honestly, anything more (and even just Ti rods) is overkill in a street engine.

If you want less reciprocating mass, get a lightweight flywheel. ANything lighter than that and the car will not be very drivable because of how quickly the rpm's will die between shifts.
