Cast, and by a company who's name escapes me at the moment.

I was told they were forged aluminum..... that was by one of the parts guys on here.... I'll see if I can dig up the old post.

OK I found it... I was wrong they are cast

Quote:
The rods are forged and broken cap design. The pistons are Mahle race pistons.

But I know for sure that Mahle makes AWSOME pistons.... from back in my racing VW bug days.

VWs AND Porsches. My 44 has Mahles in it. I have seen those things go for 300k without any problems in the NA 44s. Really nice stuff.... although I recall reading that they were hyperuetics (sp?), not forges units.

I think "cast pistons" and "race pistons" shouldn't be in the same sentence without "are not".
