Fletcher, NC (April 17, 2009)… MAHLE’s high performance aluminum diesel race pistons are now available for Dodge Cummins 5.9L 12v & 24v, GM Duramax 6.6L, Ford Powerstroke 6.0L, 6.4L & 7.3L engine. MAHLE racing diesel pistons are made to withstand the extreme cylinder pressures typical in high boost diesel motorsports engines. Forged from MAHLE’s proprietary M142P aluminum alloy for added strength, and carefully machined to achieve a lighter weight, these pistons are machined with race inspired bowl configurations and feature low compression ratios.
As the largest diesel piston manufacturer worldwide, including those powering the Audi R10 prototype, MAHLE understands the specific needs of diesels when it comes to high output performance pistons. Utilizing experience from multiple race records and championships, the same close attention to the piston profile, precision CNC pin fitting, and ring groove quality is applied to ensure the right balance of strength and durability for your diesel truck. And only MAHLE MotorSports’ diesel race pistons have the skirts coated with Grafal®, a unique compressible membrane coating application to reduce scuffing, frictional drag, and cylinder bore wear. In addition, the top ring groove is hard anodized for long lasting and consistent performance.
