My Ej22T spun a bearing after about 10k miles of hard driving almost everyweekend and 3 lapping days with a drift day as well. The engine has seen 8000rpms a few times this summer but rev limit was dropped back down to 7500rpms. Spun a bearing testing revs at 5500-7500rpms.

I did talk with a Machine shop that builds engines as well. He said that having a constant oil feed to the bearing when they're at TDC is a good thing. They done that to 4G63's and it worked for high RPMs. This double crossed drilled will make the difference in rod bearings bring constantly pressured with oil. Even double cross drilled, oil still has to go through the rod bearing and crank.
