Now there’s a way to ensure more reliable power from EcoBoost powered 2.3L engines with the introduction of MAHLE Motorsport’s 4032 alloy Ford EcoBoost 2.3L PowerPak Plus Piston kit. Designed for heavy duty applications where the OE cast piston has been known to fail, MAHLE Motorsport has introduced a 4032 alloy option that not only adds much needed strength, but allows for a tighter piston to wall clearance for quieter cold startup.
To help correct problems associated with the OE cast piston, MAHLE Motorsport manufactured this kit with a thick slipper skirt style forging and an enhanced OE crown design with increased radius for improved strength. Other special features include a heavy duty 0.200” wall thickness, H13 tool steel wrist pins, and a hard anodized top ring groove that is ideal for extreme duty applications. The pistons are engineered with thick 0.235” top and 0.200” second ring lands. These pistons are designed for OE 149.3 mm length connecting rods and OE 22.5mm Ø, wrist pins and an OE 32.8mm compression height. Valve pockets and depth accommodates both the 2.0L and 2.3L OE EcoBoost heads with a 9.5:1 compression ratio.
This new PowerPak Plus kit is available in 87.51mm (part #197937145) and 88.00mm (#197937165) bore sizes and includes a Nitrided steel 1.2mm top, 1.2mm second, 2.8mm oil ring set. The pistons are coated with MAHLE’s unique GRAFAL®anti-friction skirt coating and phosphate to prevent microwelding and pin galling.
