Mahle - PowerPack Forged Piston Set - 1.8t 20v - 81.00mm bore / 8.5:1 Comp / 20mm WP 'Drop-in'
OEM quality, aftermarket performance! This is a set of extremely high quality Mahle PowerPack pistons for the 1.8t 20v engine. Mahle Powerpack pistons are extremely high quality pieces which provide improvements in strength over OEM pistons without some of the sacrifices sometimes found in other forged pistons. Mahle Powerpack pistons are precision forged from 4032 alloy, a low expenasion rate aluminum. They all feature forged side reliefs, reducing the weight of the overall package. They also use slipper skirt designs, reducing friction and further reducing weight. Mahle PowerPack pistons feature ultra flat ring grooves, which promote excellent ring seal and most importantly reduce the chances of micro-welding during break in. Every set of Mahle PowerPack pistons comes with their exclusive Grafal skirt coating, which is not only anti-friction but also offers impact absorbing qualities, reducing piston noise and decreasing stresses in the piston skirt.
Mahle PowerPack Pistons are an excellent choice for those looking for increases in strength while maintaining a lightweight piston with oem fit and finish. They have 20mm wrist pins so they will require a set of rods with 20mm pins to match.
Please note! Most 1.8t engines (except 98-99) use a 19mm wrist pin, including all models made 2000 and later. Please be sure to purchase the correct wrist pin spec connecting rods!
