Mahle created PowerPak Piston and Ring Kits suited for a wide variety of performance engine applications.
Mahle PowerPak Piston and Ring Kits include forged pistons made from 4032 aluminum alloy to allow for tighter cylinder to wall clearances and improved temperature stability. The piston skirts get Mahle’s GRAFAL® coating to reduce drag, piston noise, scuffing, friction, and cylinder bore wear.
The kits also come with piston rings, pins, and locks. A dry lubricant phosphate coating in the pin bores and ring grooves helps prevent galling and microwelding during initial engine startup and break-in. Rounding out a PowerPak kit is a set of high performance, low drag 1.5mm-1.5mm-3.0mm piston rings (1/16-1/16-3/16 inch for most big block V8s), steel pins, and race-proven round wire locks. Other features include:
- Lightweight slipper skirt forgings
- Fully-machined crown
- Pin bores finished on CNC boring equipment
- Fully deburred
In addition to the standard PowerPak Piston and Ring Kits, Mahle offers PowerPak Plus Piston and Ring Kits designed for dedicated race applications, The kits have pistons made from an even stronger 2618 aluminum alloy.
Mahle Wissota PowerPak Plus Piston and Ring Kits are purpose-built for sportsman-level circle track racers. The pistons are gas ported for improved sealing, which results in more horsepower.
Mahle also builds Twisted Wedge® PowerPak Piston Kits tailored specifically to Trick Flow’s Twisted Wedge Cylinder Heads for small block Ford.
Summit Racing carries a large selection of Mahle PowerPak Piston and Ring Kits for domestic V8 engines, including late model GM LS, Ford Modular, and Chrysler Hemi. Summit Racing also offers PowerPak Plus kits for later model Honda, Subaru, Nissan, and Mitsubishi four-cylinder engines.
