The number of new parts available for virtually every engine platform would have be unfathomable even 10 years ago. With the technology that has come to design and manufacturing processes, companies like MAHLE are able to take their ability to make world class pistons and piston rings to a completely new level. Those process have changed so dramatically as to completely shift the way they think about new products, which is why they are constantly coming out with new products based on what racers and enthusiasts like you want. It has been a game changer. The list of new applications, sizes, and configurations is long and they are working their way through them methodically so as to offer what you guys want. Such is the case with their new VooDoo Ford 5.2L Drop-In PowerPak Piston Kit. These are designed for the enthusiast who wants to grab their already running 5.2L and swap out the stock pistons for something capable of handling more boost and more power without replacing every component in the rotating assembly. These kits have become insanely popular for the LS platform, and we know they are capable of supporting big power reliably. This is just what the doctor ordered for the 5.2L VooDoo.
Here is all the info from MAHLE Motorsport:
Fletcher, NC, (April 22, 2021) – MAHLE Motorsport’s latest addition to a growing line of Ford Modular piston assemblies now includes the Ford 5.2L VooDoo Drop-in Forged PowerPak Piston Kit. Machined and inspected with the same stringent standards by MAHLE Motorsport North America, this forged replacement piston is available as a drop-in, ready-to-run assembly that requires no rebalancing or compression ratio change.
The pistons are designed to accept either the OE rod with tapered small end, or an aftermarket rectangular rod. They are dual coated with phosphate and MAHLE’s proprietary GRAFAL® coating for reduced drag and wear, and feature hard anodized top ring grooves for maximum durability and to protect against micro-welding. 1.0, 1.0, 2.0mm factory PTWA bore-compatible performance rings are also included. The 7.8cc crown design has a compression ratio of 12.0 to 1 based on a 57cc head volume, and calculated at .012” below deck and a .039” head gasket thickness. The PowerPak piston kit comes complete with pins, and clips, and can be purchased through any MAHLE Motorsport distributor.
