If you are thinking about considerably upgrading your 2009-16 Hyundai Genesis Sedan horsepower, try the ACL main bearing set 5M1295H-STD. With stock engine output, your engine's factory-installed main bearings can last the lifetime of your car. Your engine's stock main bearings may not function as efficiently, however, with more engine output. The ACL main bearing set 5M1295H-STD has been especially prepared for higher horsepower applications. You can buy this set of bearings for just $225.32, which is reasonable 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 placed 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 ACL main bearing set 5M1295H-STD 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. In your boosted engine, the firing pressure that pushes the connecting rods down on the crankshaft is higher, and so your crankshaft is sure to rotate much faster. The higher 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 cause immense damage to your engine. These ACL's main bearings are fashioned with extended oil grooves and tapered groove run-outs that ensure a more substantial flow of oil, and they have also been made with standard oil clearance for a stouter oil film. Therefore, you can count on them to keep providing excellent lubrication even with increased heat and friction levels that come with the increased horsepower.
Superior Seizure Prevention
The bearings that come with the ACL main bearing set 5M1295H-STDare far less susceptible to bearing seizure than the OE bi-metal aluminum-alloy bearings in your 2009-16 Hyundai Genesis Sedan. These bi-metal aluminum bearings operate satisfactorily within specified horsepower levels. They are likely to flake or peel under higher engine loads. In extreme cases, their aluminum alloys may soften and melt, and as a result, the crankshaft may seize them. However, the bearings of the ACL main bearing set 5M1295H-STD use tri-metal hardened steel backs with a low-friction, deformable lead-tin-copper overlay that resists seizure when the crankshaft gets in contact with them, even under high engine loads. Therefore, you will do well to get these ACL race series bearings for your car, especially if you plan to upgrade its performance significantly.
Guaranteed to Last Longer
The ACL main bearing set 5M1295H-STD will last longer than your stock main engine bearings. These more rigid bearings are fashioned especially for high-performance driving and high horsepower applications. They feature three layers of friction-resistant nickel and lead-tin-copper alloys, all bonded to SAE1010 high strength steel plates that will maintain crush high engine loads. In addition, these performance engine bearings deliver increased force, which results in better heat management.
