The small-block Chevy has been a staple in the hot-rodding world since its inception in 1955. Often found between the fenders of everything from Tri-Five Chevies, to Ford Deuce Coupes and dragsters. The 327 was a high-revving small-block that quickly became a staple on the streets and on the dragstrip during the musclecar era, and continues to live on as a favorite among gear heads today.
In the most recent years, our friends at MAHLE Motorsports have expanded their product line with the help of their new forged PowerPak pistons. The awesome 327 small-block, is their latest offering. Read the full disclosure from MAHLE below!

Fletcher, NC, – MAHLE Motorsport now offers a cost-effective way to modify any 327 Small Block Chevy engine for more power with the introduction of their new all-forged dome 327 SBC PowerPak Piston Kit. This shelf-stock piston kit, available wherever MAHLE Motorsport pistons are sold, provides everything needed to replace factory installed pistons in a 327cid SBC engine.

Whether you are modifying a 1964 –1969 Chevelle, El Camino, Corvette or Malibu, there’s now a way to garner even more power with added durability and strength – while staying within budget. MAHLE Motorsport’s pistons are machined to exact tolerances to fit the original block with features that are typical of custom ordered pistons. Developed from 4032 aluminum alloy for added durability, the pistons are dual coated with a dry lubricant Phosphate coating and then MAHLE’s GRAFAL® skirt coating to reduce drag, wear and noise. MAHLE’s new HV385 steel thin ring design delivers excellent ring-to-cylinder sealing with low mass and an extended RPM range without loss of ring stability.
