I have read posts on a number of forums as well as different websites about what main and connecting rod bearings to use. The ones I see used most are ACL race bearings, OEM, and Nismo.
Why is there not many people using clevite bearings? The reason I am asking is because the machine shop I am having the work done, only uses clevite. Should I use clevite or should I order one of the other brands?

Thanks

Some people have said Clevite bearings are not too precise.. I use King rod bearings (and Clevite main).. My cousin's 800hp civic runs them with no problems.. Next rebuild, I'm going with King all around..
