Revisiting ceramic hybrid bearings.
I've been doing more research, found a reputable distributor at a competitive price. You see manufacturers claiming 10x bearing life, lets be realistic and say 3-4 times longer and 5% horsepower gain.
Quality name brand races and American made, aerospace grade silicon nitride balls. (None of the Chinese knockoffs you see on internet wholesalers)
Using the 604FT as an example
All 8 bottom end bearings, camshaft, and belt tensioner bearings.
Standard Bearings - ~$230
Ceramic Hybrid - ~$780
At almost 340% the price, who would consider hybrid ceramics? ... See MoreSee Less
3-4 times the life of standard carbon steel bearing?
Mike Oneil says spend money on something else.
If it were a true 5% Horsepower gain that would be money well spent.
I would definitely be up for a set if I get 3 times the wear out of em. As you say, HP hains are a bonus.
As an engineer no. Ceramics have amazing wear and frictional properties, but where a steel bearing will eventually increase in free play, a ceramic will self destruct after any shock forces.
If your main bearings incur enough shock that they "self destruct" then your probably looking at replacing cases, balancer, trans etc.
Use the best lubricant available. Lubrication Engineers 10-30 or 40.

I love the "best oil" debate. It's never settled and never gets old.
