Default Has Anyone Tried AVID Front Bearing?

I know TKO is better, but I'm on tight budget...what do you think? My engine is OS Vspec. Thanks...

I wouldnt be scared to try them out. They make good bearings. Are they that much cheaper than the TKO's though? I just dropped a set the same size as yours in my mill. Powerhouse has a deal that if you buy the bearings from him he will put them in for free i belive thats who i have do all my engine work.

Since I live outside US, shipping cost is a big matter to me. Yes AVID sells front bearings for $5 (steel) and TKO $15 (ceramic), same amount of shipping cost. If anyone has tried this bearing please chime in...I will buy AVID's if this bearing lasts at least 3 gallons on my vspec.
