MAHLE Motorsport Performance Cast Powerstroke PowerPak Sets

Designed with performance bowls that reduce erosion issues caused by high pressure, long duration, and advanced injection timing, and available with 0.100” deep intake and exhaust valve pockets that work with many performance aftermarket camshafts.

MAHLE Motorsport is pleased to announce four new performance cast PowerPak piston sets for the 6.0L and 6.4L Ford Powerstroke. Developed in direct response to consumer demand for diesel motorsports competition, the new 6.0L pistons are based off the 2004+ design, and the 6.4L pistons are based off of the MaxxForce design that provides maximum strength and superior durability. All four sets offer incredible versatility, allowing a daily driver to become a weekend warrior for drag, dyno, or pulling competitions. 

These castings retain the OEM steel top ring insert for the longevity of the top ring groove and are engineered with fully radiused valve pockets to reduce stress and fatigue cracking. Also, a lower compression ratio (.5 to 1.5 points) allows more flexibility for high output tuning, MAHLE Motorsport’s Powerstroke piston sets provide unrivaled value, strength, durability, and versatility, unlike any other shelf stock piston on the market.

Designed with performance bowls that reduce erosion issues caused by high pressure, long duration, and advanced injection timing, and available with 0.100” deep intake and exhaust valve pockets that work with many performance aftermarket camshafts.

The 6.0L PowerPak set is cast from MAHLE’s proprietary M124 alloy and the 6.4L Powerstroke set is cast from M142 alloy. Both are designed for a 4.134 stroke and 6.929 rod. The CR is calculated with 0.0008” piston protrusion above deck and 0.059” head gasket thickness. As with all PowerPak piston sets, the pistons are treated with MAHLE’s proprietary GRAFAL® skirt coating for reduced drag and increased scuff resistance. Heavy-duty DLC-coated tool steel wrist pins, clips, and a high-performance ring set rounds out this value-packed PowerPak. 

MAHLE Motorsport Program Manager, Joe Maylish, says, “Diesel motorsports is all the rage from NHRDA, ODSS to Ultimate Callout Challenge. We’re excited to announce that MAHLE Motorsport is coming in strong for 2023 with new diesel piston sets in time for this year’s race season. So, if you are a seasoned competitor needing an edge or just thinking about competing this year, our new Powerstroke kits are designed to give you the edge on the weekends and improve performance throughout the week.”
