CAL-5M1644H Main Bearing Set - Calico Coated ACL Race (4-cyl)



Product Info

These bearings are the real deal coated bearings. Not just spray painted OEM bearings, these start as premium ACL brand race bearings. These base bearing shells feature a hardened steel backing, with increased bearing crush for better bearing shell retetion (less likely to spin). They have increased ovality to compensate for rod distortion at high rpm levels, and are designed with a high strength overlay plate for maximum fatigue resistance. All of this is covered up with a professionally applied coating by Calico, giving a truely high performance bearing from the coating all the way to the outer shell. These really are the real deal! They are available in standard or +.0005" per shell, giving .001" extra bearing clearance for the most extreme applications.

Fits most VW 4 cylinder engines from 1983-2008, please enquire for fitment questions. These do not fit new TSI chain-driven engines!
