MAHLE Motorsport Introduces New Small Block Chevy Dish PowerPak Piston Set

MAHLE Motorsport’s SBC Dish PowerPak pistons are available either in a 2618 alloy or 4032 alloy, the kit comes complete with a 1.0, 1.0, 2.0mm file fit performance ring set, pins, and clips.

MAHLE Motorsport is introducing a redesign of their popular Small Block Chevy Dish PowerPak Piston set. The new forging design is both stronger and lighter. The improved design removes on average 29 grams of mass allowing the new forging to not only to be lighter but stronger in key areas such as the pin bore and below the oil ring groove. The new design also has deeper valve pockets; allowing a builder to accommodate a wider variety of performance camshafts.

MAHLE Motorsport North American Motorsports Product Manager, Eric Grilliot says, “Using our decades of engineering expertise, we were able to reimagine our Small Block Chevy PowerPak to optimize the overall design of the forging. With the new design, the pistons are lighter and stronger which can be a game changer. At MAHLE Motorsport, there is a never-ending pursuit to make each PowerPak the best on the market, so this was not done with the purpose of marketing with an upcharge or to make it an exclusive premium part.  We were very excited to introduce this optimized design at the 2022 PRI show.” 

MAHLE Motorsport’s SBC Dish PowerPak pistons are available either in a 2618 alloy or 4032 alloy, the kit comes complete with a 1.0, 1.0, 2.0mm file fit performance ring set, pins, and clips. The pistons are coated with Phosphate to prevent micro-welding in the ring grooves and pin galling, and GRAFAL® anti-friction skirt coating to reduce drag, scuffing, and cylinder bore wear while reducing piston noise.
