Bottom line is because of our engine design the bearings are a wear item if you drive our cars like they were meant to be driven or an 80 year old grandma.If you track our cars this will happen sooner rather than later with the stock setup ( high temps on track , narrow bearings ). No oil brand will protect you from this . For me why have a high revving I6 if you are going to drive it like a Camry . No short shifting on track for me . That's why I have fixed the temperature issue , and replaced the bearings with a better one, now I can drive my car like it was meant to be driven for many more years . The rest of the engine was pristine , our engines are far from glass guys .
