Re: What are the best main/rod bearings?

Congrats on getting your car back. And for the record, ACL race bearings can't be beat for the money in my opinion. I've ran them in 2 of my old honda motors and about 5 other blocks built for friends and never had a single problem with any of them.

Re: What are the best main/rod bearings?

Dont cut the factory unless you can re-nitride it. Most places cant do this though.

I have a tip for all you punk.s Non turbo 2.0 crank works wonders.

Yea, they are the same, but is it any more available. The guy seemed to have a trouble locating one. At a decent cost of course.

Re: What are the best main/rod bearings?

I come across complete 4g63 NT cars all day... They made significantly more NT's than turbos so in theory they should be much easier to find.

Re: What are the best main/rod bearings?

Are the NT cranks the same as the turbo ones? Someone said that they were not Nitrided.

Excellent, thanks Sean! I trust what you have to say over the person who I heard the other information from.

I can get the oem cranks out to you guys for $700 shipped.

Re: What are the best main/rod bearings?

I have ran a cut crank in my 6g72 and never had a problem. I talked to the guy at the machine shop and he said they are fine to run. I have 12k on my rebuild. It's cheap too. Only 97$ for a cut crank vs a lot.

I would recommend getting the plugs pulled ND cleaned on the crank. You want absolutely zero metal in their obviously.

Also flush you oil cooler with ac flush. I did that too and haven't found a specific of metal and it's been 12k
