PRO 48 fleetline Best pistons on the market.
There are some other good ones, JE etc. but mahles are an awesome piston have forged ones in my 406.
Most nascar engines are all stuffed with them.

topwrench I first became familiar with mahle on big german diesels I work on,very,very reliable and tolerances very close from piston to piston.
I started using them in my hotrod motors and have exellent luck with them,you can also call mahle and talk to a tech that is extremely knowlegable on this piston,avdvise on ring gap etc,I just wish they had double truac pin retainers from the factory,I like to use truac double ,flat to flat and that I know of thats not offered any more,just takes less time and in my opinion is a better way,but they are exellent pistons to say the least!!!!

SSedan64 I agree, they're a fine example of "you get what you pay for". Very good quality.

X2 we have used some in our circle track engines we have built and they are a very very nice piston to run.
