Matched Shells

This ACL custom bearing kit uses mix and matched sets of various ACL specs to achieve the target clearances.

Lead & Copper Trimetal

The ACL bearings are also made using the original 088/089 tri-metal lead and copper composition known for being softer on your crankshaft.

Made for your V10.

The bearings have S85 specific tabs in the design to align & secure with your connecting rods.

Custom ARP-2000 bolts

Offering a step up in strength over OEM and a simplified installation procedures, these bolts are made by ARP to fit the S85 connecting rods.

So how bad were they? Place your bets.

After a decade on BMW M groups and forums, I've found the rod bearing dilemma to be excessively religious in nature.

I trust in science.

In this entry, I document my rod bearing service on my original S85B50 engine: I briefly lay the fundamentals to bearings and discuss the rational for my bearing & bolts selection, along with the signature picture of the original bearings

Enjoy,

ACL Racing Series
Australian made.

ACL is recognized as a premier brand throughout the motorsports world and engine builders.

Their coated bearings combine ACL’s tough RACE Series lining and overlay metallurgy with Calico’s CT-1 coating.

CT-1 is a Dry Film Lubricant coating that helps reduce friction and abrasive wear. It provides intermittent dry lubrication and is not affected by dust or dirt.

It's what I run in my M engines.
