Since their inception in 2000, MAHLE Motorsport North American has climbed to the top of the industry as a leading supplier of forged racing pistons and piston rings. They are recognized across the board as the leader in technology, which can be found in use in race teams in almost every racing series in North America, as well as all over the world.
MAHLE Motorsport is in a constant state of research and development due to the demand of the industry. As a result, they are always releasing new products for high-performance applications, and at the 2017 SEMA show, Trey McFarland of MAHLE Motorsports gives us a closer look at their latest offerings.
MAHLE Motorsport is the OE supplier of the Chevy COPO Camaro, Ford Super Cobra Jet, and Chrysler Drag Pack Challengers, so obviously they know their stuff when it comes to making the perfect stock class piston. One of their big new offerings is NHRA Legal PowerPak Plus Pistons for modular and Coyote Ford engines. These pistons are available in more sizes off the shelf for the consumer.
These pistons are available in more sizes off the shelf for the consumer. These pistons are designed to allow you to push your engine to the limit every time you do a build, while staying within the NHRA guidelines, and without having to break the bank by heading to the dealership. Since MAHLE makes these hard anodized pistons in high-volume, they are able to offer them at a much more affordable price than the other piston manufacturers.
Every product developed by MAHLE Motorsport is backed by over 95 years of motorsport heritage and technology. Through their use of state-of-the-art design and development processes, they are able to make pistons and rings that are unmatched in both performance and durability. The lightweight, low-drag design forging is made with ring grove quality, tolerances, and consistency in mind. Each piston gets multiple surface treatment applications for an added level of protection under the most extreme conditions.
