Mahle Motorsport‘s recent press release proclaims the company supports circle track champions with their PowerPak piston kit for Wissota B-Mod concept engines. In essence, this new kit would contain all the technological features of a traditional Mahle PowerPak in an approved part number.
According the company’s press release, Mahle Motorsport offers a PowerPak Piston Kit for Wissota concept engines for both small block Chevy and small block Ford. Highlighting Mahle Motorsport’s lightweight and strong, low drag slipper skirt forging, dual coatings, and precision ring grooves, for maximum sealing and power. This new PowerPak is approved for Wissota auto racing and Wissota Late Models which have become known for their 347 to 360 cubic-inch engines generating over 500 horsepower.
In keeping with the standard PowerPak piston design, these all forged pistons are precision machined to exacting tolerances on purpose built equipment manufactured by Mahle, specifically designed for piston production and feature precision ring grooves for maximum sealing and power. The top ring groove is hard anodized to protect against micro-welding insuring optimum ring seal over the life of the engine.
The pistons are manufactured and dual coated with a phosphate dry lubricant to guard against galling in the pin bores, and to add lubricity in the second and third ring grooves. This is followed by a Grafal anti-friction skirt coating to reduce drag, scuffing, friction and cylinder bore wear. The proprietary skirt coating has a cushioning property that greatly reduces wear for both the piston and the bore as well as a substantial reduction in noise. Included in the kit are 1.5. 1.5, 3.0 mm ductile iron moly rings.
