3 Reasons to Upgrade to the 2005 Hyundai Sonata Main Bearing Set MB5315XPCSTDX by King Engine Bearings
If you are thinking about markedly boosting your 2005 Hyundai Sonata horsepower, try the King Engine Bearings main bearing set MB5315XPCSTDX. With stock engine output, your engine's OE main bearings can last the lifetime of your car. However, when you boost your car’s horsepower by giving it an ECU remap or adding bolt-on performance mods, you are likely to strain your stock bearings and cause them to fall apart prematurely. The King Engine Bearings main bearing set MB5315XPCSTDX has been mainly fashioned for higher horsepower applications. You can buy this set of bearings for just $87.1, which is competitive for premium engine bearings. Want to find out more about these bearings? Let us discuss this below.

What is the main bearing set?
Main bearings are located within the saddles of a piston engine block, and they hold the ends of your car's crankshaft, making it easier for the crankshaft to rotate within an engine block. The King Engine Bearings main bearing set MB5315XPCSTDX comprises journal bearings.
What are three reasons to upgrade?
Your stock main bearings may not be able to cope with your car's upgraded engine output. Higher horsepower will cause the pistons and piston rods in your engine to push down with greater speed and intensity, causing the crankshaft to rotate at higher speeds. The increased rotation speed of the crankshaft will diminish the lubricating effect of the thin oil film between the main bearings and the crankshaft. The crankshaft may end up rubbing against your bearings more, causing intense friction that may tear apart your bearings. Worse still, it may even weld onto the crankshaft and bring about immense damage to your engine. These King Engine Bearings' main bearings are designed with extended oil grooves and tapered groove run-outs that ensure a steadier flow of oil, and they have also been fabricated with a good oil clearance for a more significant oil film. Therefore, you can count on them to keep providing ideal lubrication even with increased heat and friction levels that come with the increased horsepower.
Superior Seizure Prevention
Bearing seizure is the last thing you want for your 2005 Hyundai Sonata engine. When exposed to extremely high temperatures (primarily because of increased friction between the bearings and the crankshaft), your engine's bearings can soften, melt, and consequently get seized around the journals of your crankshaft. When spun around at high RPM, seized bearings tear up the bores in your engine block and may cause even more damage to your engine. The King Engine Bearings main bearing set MB5315XPCSTDX can help avert that because they have an additional lead-tin-copper overlay with a higher load-carrying capacity of up to 12,000 PSI or over 800 horsepower. This layer is also deformable and more friction resistant, and so it does a better job of resisting seizure.
Guaranteed to Last Longer
The King Engine Bearings main bearing set MB5315XPCSTDX is also guaranteed to last longer. These performance engine bearings have sturdier high-strength steel backings that will hold up to the pressures of high engine loads for longer. Their substantial crushes also go a long way in helping to reduce and manage heat buildup, and because of that, they last longer.
