Wrist Pins

Any help appreciated on a source or specs of OEM GT2/TT wrist pins for the Mahle pistons. If anyone knows what spec's I would need to request from a piston company or if Mahle has a part number ( couldn't find it listed in Porsche manual separately). I'm also open to purchasing said wrist pins or one from the various race parts vendors if I new what specs to request. I don't have an engine apart currently so can't gain my own measurements currently.

Thanks for any assistance or direction to be pointed.

I have some laying around if you need measurements. Are you assuming yours are worn out?

I'm just accumulating parts for a build. I picked up a "odd" new OEM set of pistons and barrels for big discount. Well only a discount if I can solve the wrist pin issue since they were missing from the Mahl setup. I know in my domestic race cars, we upgrade and trade out pistons to tool steel on a regular basis. I really don't know why I couldn't simply order a custom set from say Carrillo or such. The engine I'm using as core is low mileage in itself with only 15k, and i haven't heard of turbo pins being a weak point. BUT, the idea of reusing wrist pins with all other new reciprocating parts seems weird for even a frugal guy.

I was aware, but didn't know if they'd spec a set for OEM Mahle pistons. I guess it wouldn't hurt to simply call.

I'd just use your current pins, I'd doubt they show much wear on them. You should just get the 3.8 slugs and liners.
