New graphite cylinders for Porsche at Albert Motorsport

Dear all,

we have been using the best repair version for Porsche Wasserboxer engines since the year 2000. Sturdy, solid, centrifugally cast graphite cylinder.

To date, well over 1,000 engines have been equipped with it. To date, not a single engine has been damaged!

A success that was guaranteed by the quality of our work and the intensive further development of our products.

On January 1st, 2020, we streamlined the design of the cylinder and increased the graphite material used from a hardness factor of 5 to a factor of 7.

In the meantime, more than 100 new engines have been built with these cylinders, so that their suitability for tough everyday use has also been proven.

These are the new cylinders for building the best Porsche Wasserboxer you can get!

What did we change, was it necessary, if so, why?

  • The most noticeable change is the waisting of the cylinder. Due to the slimmer side flank, the water throughput between the cylinders increases by around 100% compared to before. That creates a significantly better heat dissipation when "full throttle" on the highway.
  • The bearing surface on the milled cylinder base has almost been doubled, as has the bearing surface of the cylinder head. Slight phase milling was carried out on the head in order to increase the width of the surface to the limit of what is feasible.
  • On the one hand, the wider sealing surfaces guarantee 100% tightness, and on the other hand, the heat dissipation to the block and head is also shifted to the maximum range.
  • The graphite material now used has a hardness factor of 7 (previously 5) compared to the standard aluminum.
  • This creates even greater strength and greater stability against distortion, shrinkage and twisting.

We can therefore claim to use the best available material for our engine construction in order to be able to build the best possible engines for our customers.

The forged Porsche Mahle pistons used in the construction of our engines complete the package of our quality engine construction.

We want you to be able to drive thousands of kilometers with your Porsche engine without any problems.

We invest a lot of time in the development and quality assurance of our products for Porsche.
