MAHLE Motorsport 2.0L PowerPak Piston Set for the Ford ZX3 Engine

The pistons, weighing in at 307 grams, are dual coated with Phosphate to prevent micro-welding in the ring grooves and pin galling, and MAHLE’s GRAFAL® anti-friction skirt coating to reduce drag.

MAHLE Motorsport is pleased to introduce a high-performance 2.0L PowerPak piston set approved for SCCA competition for racers competing with a Ford ZX3 engine.  Designed for a 5.483” long Ford or Eagle connecting rod (Part #CRS5483F3D) and developed from high strength 4032 aluminum alloy in a slipper skirt forging, this new PowerPak set adds reliability, increased durability, and quieter operation for higher horsepower applications. The pistons are only available in a 3.339” bore size, and regulations require OEM or Hastings rings only, so high-performance rings are not included with this set.  The set does come with 0.787” diameter wrist pins, each weighing 92 grams and clips. 

The pistons, weighing in at 307 grams, are dual coated with Phosphate to prevent micro-welding in the ring grooves and pin galling, and MAHLE’s GRAFAL® anti-friction skirt coating to reduce drag. The unique properties of GRAFAL reduce harsh contact between the piston skirt and cylinder bore resulting in much less wear on the bore and significantly reduced piston skirt fatigue.
