MAHLE Releases PowerPak+ Piston Kits For Boosted LS Engines

New from MAHLE – the PowerPak+ Piston Kits for Boosted LSA/LS3/LS9 Engines. These piston kits are specifically for high output and boosted LS engines that are capable of achieving 1000+ HP. See more details below.

Official Release:

MAHLE Motorsport now offers PowerPak+ Piston Kits designed specifically for high output, boosted GM LSA/LS3/LS9 engines with aggressive cylinder head/camshaft combinations that are capable of achieving 1000+ HP.

MAHLE Motorsport’s LSA/LS3/LS9 pistons are designed on 2618 alloy slipper skirt forgings with optimized material thicknesses maintained in key high stress areas, while all critical finishing operations are machined on specialized equipment manufactured by MAHLE precisely for piston production that allows for tighter control over machining tolerances.

For added durability three separate surface treatments are applied, beginning with a phosphate dry-film lubricant to protect pin bores from galling, followed by MAHLE’s proprietary Grafal anti-friction skirt coating, and finally hard anodized top ring grooves to protect against micro-welding.

As with all PowerPak Piston Kits, the pistons, pin clips and rings are included. The kit includes MAHLE’s HV385 1.0mm, 1.0mm, 2.0mm steel rings designed to reduce drag, wear, and weight while ensuring conformability to increase sealing and oil control.
