Hello,

I am thinking of using a main bearing girdle on my build.
Does anybody have some experiance in using one, is there alot of machining that you need to do you're self?

I am looking fot the one of eurospec sports, or are there other option located in europe?

It depends on what gridle, eurospec for exemple will need to machine correct spacers, starter oil pump etc have to be spaced down ect

@Jimbo:

on the eurospec site the write the folowing:

"Installation requires machining of individual bearing cap spacers."

Or is this not the case and is it only is some cases

Not jimbo, but, you will need to do it when using eurospec gridle

The easier to install is srm, not need to relocate starter

Eurospec is a piece of crap especially if you are using bearing cap spacers. Using higher main caps would be better but not worth the money. It does a very little to support the main caps/block.

Only gain the SRM girdle will give is a happy seller. Wont do any good to your block what so ever. If you are running very high power and are afraid braking the block and want to do something for a better night sleep buy a good pillow rahter than SRM girdle.

I enjoyed that. No experience with this product but the comments are "bracing"
