Can I use stock Cobra pistons for my Mark 8 motor. I am not building a monster, so I don't really need a 500 dollar set of pistons. Any suggestions?

Yes,that would be the same pistons that are in the mark motor anyway.

No,only the '03 Cobra has forged pistons-the rest of them are the exact same pistons as the Mark VIII.

Aaarrrrr yee matey, both cars use the same pistons. You might want to go aftermarket anyway just to get a piston with a lower top ring but that's purely up to you since a stock motor doesn't know what pistons are in it.
