ACL is good, you just have to make sure your clearances are perfect upon installing them. Same thing with OEM bearings. I'd prolly go with ACL bearings tho....but oem is very good.

Honda bearings are good. Ive talked with alot of people. I used them in my Crx racecar. I think Gude uses them in there cars too.
Maybe I've just had bad experiences. Last summer, the thrust bearing in my flywheel broke and I ended up replacing the clutch assemby. It only had 75k miles, most of which were driven by a woman. My new Honda throwout bearing ended up whistling at idle about 6 months later, but I ignored it. A few months ago, the mainshaft bearing in my transmission died, so I had to pull the tranny, open it, and replace the bearing (I did the throwout bearing while I was at it). The only things that could have caused the bearings to fail were riding the clutch and bad flywheel alignment, and neither was an issue. Honda might make good journal bearings, except for the ones in D16Y8 rods that are known to fail, but I wouldn't trust their ball bearings.

On my d16a6 I built(in the process of building I should say) I used honda bearings because I didn't have to machine any of the rods or crank jornals so they have a color code for a select fit, buleprinting the factory way pretty much.
