    Bearing Clearances Question

    I'm working a completely stock 02 LS 5.3 build. I bought a standard size set of Clevite P-series main bearings, I'm measuring about .0028 in. bearing clearance on the mains. I could get some MS-2199H-1 .001 under which would put the clearance closer to factory spec, but the bearings are about $170, don't know if its worth it or maybe different brand bearing. Any recommendations for those you know these engines well?

    Clevite P-series bearings as well as King bearings are really good. I used King in my build.

    Have you had a machine shop check the crank and block to see if it's in spec?
