Turbo Rod Bearings, Where to Buy?

OR if you can can find a supplier of NDC bearings I can give you the actual NDC part #. (NDC is the supplier for Subaru)
Good luck. I could not find an aftermarket source for turbo rod bearings.

The part to order is a federal mogul 41065cp and can even be ordered from www.partsamerica.com
Using a narrower rod bearing on a turbo motor is not a good Idea. Especially with a turbo where detonation and high rod bearing forces are more readily happening. I'm not sure what I would have done if I was not able to find the correct bearing.

This is one of the better parts links that I have come across. Go there and search for your year, make, and model. They list a different part number for turbo and non- turbo bearings. Good price for EXACTLY the same thing you will get from the dealer.

According to www.power-auto-parts.com the NDC part number is:
A2030-32021 and retails for $33.

For what it's worth, I would recommend that anyone replacing their bearings use the turbo version of the rod bearing. They are better, and like Keith pointed out, cheaper too. I am fairly certain that the rod bearings are the same for ea81 and ea82 1800cc engines.

Also, Michigan Clevite frequently repackages OEM bearings. You can tell by looking at the end of the bearing. It will have NDC stamped on it.
