Fletcher, NC… May 1, 2014 –As the main supplier to Porsche from original equipment to their Formula 1 race efforts, it’s no wonder MAHLE Motorsports pistons are in such high demand from the discerning Porsche enthusiast. Designed to the exacting standards that Porsche owners have come to expect from MAHLE, they are triple coated first with a phosphate dry film to protect the pin bores from galling. Next, MAHLE’s proprietary anti-friction Grafal® coating is applied to the 2618 alloy slipper skirt forgings and then finally, to withstand the higher cylinder temperatures and pressures associated with a highly tuned Porsche engine, the top ring grooves are hard anodized to protect against micro-welding.
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.
