Fletcher, NC… December 21, 2015 – MAHLE Motorsports announces its latest application for the Ford EcoBoost engine family; the 2.3L PowerPak Piston Kit designed for highly boosted, direct injected engines. The kit is now available through MAHLE Motorsports distributors and allows engine builders to develop horsepower levels more commonly associated with larger, more expensive V8 engine builds.
These PowerPak Piston Kits feature pistons with lightweight, ultra-strong slipper skirt forgings, lightweight German steel pins, and a steel nitride ring set. The pistons are dual coated, first with phosphate to protect the pin bores from galling, then with MAHLE’s Grafal® skirt coating for greatly reduced drag and wear. For maximum durability, the top ring grooves are hard anodized to protect against micro-welding similar to the heavy Ni-Resist top ring groove insert on the OEM pistons.
“Ford’s 2.3L EcoBoost engine can, when modified with MAHLE Motorsports’ PowerPak Piston Kit, generate horsepower levels in the range of even the most powerful V8s,” stated Trey McFarland, Sales/Marketing Manager for MAHLE Motorsports. “These new internal engine components are world-class items for those who want to leave nothing to chance. Insist on MAHLE’s 2.3L PowerPak Piston Kit when building your V8 killer.”
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.
