We are proud to present Genuine Mahle pistons, available as drop in replacement, or reduced height to compensate for block machining. All pistons come with pistons, pins rings and clips. All pistons come with Mahle's proprietary "Grafal" skirt coated, a high-grade dry-film lubricant for superior wear protection.
STYLE: We are proud to present Genuine Mahle pistons, available as drop in replacement, or reduced height ( .010" shorter compression height to compensate for block machining). Deliping is a popular machining service we offer for performance applications that want to lower the static compression ratio slightly and remove the "Ricardo Chamber" or the overhanging lip around the piston bowl. Valve reliefs (also commonly referred to as "flycut") describes machining relief area into the piston, needed for KDD stage 3 and larger camshafts. As long as the engine's piston protrusion and valve recession is correct, valve reliefs aren't needed for S1 and S2 camshafts.
NOTE: Adding valve reliefs and delipping to your piston order lowers the static compression ratio of the engine, typically used for race or high performance/high boost applications. The engine may be side effects from this lowered compression ratio, such as fuel smoke/haze upon first start up until the engine is at operating temp.
COATING: Also available standard or coated crown for even greater durability. These are a great option for all factory rebuilds, and mild performance builds. Check out a link to our piston coating process here.
