What is the main bearing set?
The main bearings in an internal combustion engine are designed to alleviate friction between the crankshaft and the engine block, enabling the crankshaft to rotate at high speeds as driven by the piston rods. The set includes both bearings.
What are three reasons to upgrade?
Your stock main bearings may not be able to cope with your car's boosted 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 cause catastrophic damage to your engine. These King Engine Bearings' main bearings are designed with extended oil grooves and tapered groove run-outs that ensure a more dependable flow of oil, and they have also been designed with a good oil clearance for a thicker oil film. Therefore, you can count on them to sustain excellent lubrication even with increased heat and friction levels that come with the increased horsepower.
Superior Seizure Prevention
The bearings that come with the King Engine Bearings main bearing set MB5315XPCare far less prone to bearing seizure than the OE bi-metal aluminum-alloy bearings in your 2005 Hyundai Sonata. These bi-metal aluminum bearings operate favorably 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. These King Engine Bearings main bearings have an extra lead-tin-copper overlay that delivers better wear and seizure resistance under high engine loads. Therefore, you will do well to get these King Engine Bearings race series bearings for your car, especially if you plan to enhance its performance significantly.
Guaranteed to Last Longer

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 improved heat management.
