MAHLE Motorsport Rolls Out PowerPak Pistons for Syclones and Typhoons

The underrated turbocharged 4.3L Syclone and Typhoon are very powerful vehicles without much help. Unfortunately, the owners of these vehicles often note a lack of aftermarket support. MAHLE Motorsport is helping to solve that problem by adding an application for the GM turbo 4.3L engine that powers the Syclone and Typhoon, for their extremely popular PowerPak piston line.

The PowerPak piston kit is made to withstand more power than stock, as they are made to be durable and efficient. These kits include a complete ring set, in your chosen size, that are made of all HV385 all steel rings for more strength, oil control, and reduced drag.

MAHLE Motorsport Introduces PowerPak Piston Kit for the GM 4.3L Turbo Syclone/Typhoon

MAHLE Motorsport’s GM 4.3L turbo PowerPak Piston Kit is designed to allow these two highly capable GM powerplants to reach their full potential. The vehicles’ original equipment pistons are a cast hypereutectic construction that are very limited in their ability to withstand additional increases in horsepower.

MAHLE Motorsport’s new PowerPak pistons in the new PowerPak Piston kit utilizes MAHLE’s slipper skirt forgings; each machined to exacting tolerances on equipment manufactured by MAHLE specifically for OE piston production. For added protection and durability, the pistons are dual-coated with a phosphate dry film lubricant to protect the ring grooves from micro-welding and the pin bores from galling. This is followed by an application of MAHLE’s Grafal® anti-friction skirt coating to reduce drag, wear and noise.

The GM 4.3L Turbo Syclone/Typhoon PowerPak Kit includes a complete ring set composed of 1.0mm, 1.0mm, 2.0mm HV385 all steel rings for a significant improvement in strength, sealing and oil control with a reduction in drag, wear and weight.
