When it comes to meeting the needs of their customers and keeping a finger on the pulse of the marker, few outfits are so capable of MAHLE Motorsport. For all different disciplines of competition, MAHLE creates piston combinations that allow teams and racers to succeed on all levels. If you have a big block Chevy or are building one for the drags and are planning on using a 20-degree cylinder head, we have the piston for you, the new 20° Big Block Chevy Elite Sportsman Drag Series PowerPak Plus Piston Kit. Designed for use with heads like the Bronx SR-20, Dart Pro 1 and others, this is all about big horsepower and durability.
Over the years of developing products for the drag racing market, MAHLE has acquired vast amounts of knowledge in both design and construction to make sure that racers get a strong, light, long-lasting piston that will make them horsepower for a good long time.
The kit comes with pistons, wrist pins, and circles. The rings? Those are purchased separately because everyone’s needs can vary a little bit in that respect. But with MAHLE pistons and MAHLE rings under those 20-degree BBC heads, things will get fast in a hurry.
