Whether it is fatigue of the bearing overlay or improper clearances and bearing crush, almost all engine bearing issues require a complete engine teardown. Selecting an engine bearing that can meet the needs of a high-output engine is imperative to both performance and longevity of the engine. To this end, King Engine Bearings engineered its XP line of main and rod bearings. XP Race bearings incorporate King’s proprietary pMAX™ black overlay that it claims is 24-percent stronger than other race bearings. In addition, XP Race bearings benefit from geometric features for better oil flow and a U-groove to increase load capacity. King’s XP bearings are available for most popular four- and six-cylinder sport compact applications.
