MAHLE Motorsports Introduces VW TSI PowerPak Plus Piston Assemblies

Fletcher, NC… November 4, 2014 – MAHLE Motorsports is pleased to announce the introduction of their VW TSI PowerPak Plus assemblies, designed specifically for the extreme loads of today’s high boost direct injected engines.

They are then triple coated first with a phosphate dry film to protect the pin bores from galling. Next, MAHLE’s proprietary anti-friction Grafal® is applied to the skirts. Finally, to withstand the higher cylinder temperatures and pressures associated with boosted, direct injection applications, the top ring grooves are hard anodized to protect against micro-welding.
