Developed from high-strength 2618 Aluminum alloy and manufactured with a slipper skirt forging this high-strength piston set has an OE 10:1 compression ratio and there is no balancing required with using an OEM connecting rod. Larger diameter valve pockets allow for up to 2.1-inch internal and 1.6-inch exhaust valves. The piston’s valve pocket depths easily accommodate popular power-adder camshafts.

If you’re looking to cost-effectively boost power for a 5.3L LS, this PowerPak fits the bill as it is dual coated with Phosphate and MAHLE’s GRAFAL skirt coating, comes complete with heavy-duty 0.943-inch Ǿ floating wrist pins and an HV385 coated steel 1.0mm top 1.0mm Napier and 2.0mm oil ring set.
