    What do you suggest? Oversized rod bearings or standard.

    Why would you use over size? only need that if the crank has been reground... stick to std size bearings if doing a straight swap..

    if you mean additional clearance ones, eg +0.001" then I would only use these on big power 450-500bhp+ applications.. where you might want to run a smidge more clearance.. Badgerwage runs +0.001" for example, but I dont use them on normal bt builds.. sub these power levels.

    as opposed oversize which is as tufftys says a regrind type thing re crank etc.

    Should have been clearer. Additional clearance is what I meant. Thanks for the info.

    Additonal only on high power free revving race engines IMHO
