MAHLE Motorsports Introduces Volkswagen TSI PowerPak+ Piston
MAHLE Motorsports is pleased to announce the introduction of their VW TSI PowerPak Plus assemblies, designed specifically for the extreme loads of today’s high boost direct injected engines. These PowerPak Plus pistons are machined on MAHLE M142 alloy, slipper skirt forgings with 3D shaped crowns specific to the needs of the TSI combustion chambers. They are then triple coated first with a phosphate dry film to protect the pin bores from galling. Next, MAHLE’s proprietary anti-friction Grafal® is applied to the skirts. Finally, to withstand the higher cylinder temperatures and pressures associated with boosted, direct injection applications, the top ring grooves are hard anodized to protect against micro-welding.
MAHLE is the world's largest piston manufacturer, and is the leading piston liaison between upper level professional racing, OE and the specialty equipment automotive aftermarket. All parts are machined to exacting tolerances on MAHLE manufactured, application specific equipment with unmatched quality and consistency. The U.S. Motorsports division operates in Fletcher, NC.
