Looks like King, ACL, sealed power and altrom only offer 1 standard size, and no half step sizes for our motors. Probably going to need toyota bearings for a good fit. Bummer, its such a common engine! I had hoped there would be better parts availability.
I can't even find connecting rod bolts on the toyota OEM sites. I feel as if im fighting an uphill battle, like Im just meant to break it and throw it away, then buy a whole new engine. Would much rather spend 500$ now then 2,500$ later.
What sites do you guys get your parts from? We have a toyota dealership, but their pretty steep, and will need to order the parts anyway.
Im not that worried about aftermarket quality. I helped build a couple STI engines, and the first engine grenaded its pistons. The ACL bearings we used looked really good after 30,000 miles, especially considering that the engine was pushing 480 WHP and revved to 8,000 rpm on a regular basis.
Thanks for the replies.
