MAHLE Motorsport Rolls Out PowerPak+ Piston Kits for Boost LSA/LS3/LS9

MAHLE Motorsport has just introduced new PowerPak+ Piston Kits that are specifically made for boosted GM LSA, LS3, and LS9 engines. These pistons are capable of handling up to 1,000-horsepower from heavily modified engines. They are ideal for engines with extremely aggressive cylinder heads, camshafts, and power adders to top them off.

MAHLE designed these pistons with 2618 alloy slipper skirts forgings and optimized material thickness in high-stress areas. The PowerPak+ piston kits include pistons, pin clips, and rings. Learn more from the official release from MAHLE Motorsport below.

MAHLE Motorsport Introduces PowerPak+ Piston Kits for
Boosted LSA/LS3/LS9 Engines

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.
