Default Do these bearings work with LQ4/LQ9?

I looked up these bearings and they are for LS1, wanted to know if they are the same as the LQ4/LQ9 bearings? I can find out what yr my LQ9 is but havent looked yet, not sure if it matters or not, I looked on the description of the bearings and the 6.0L isnt listed on the main bearings but is listed on the cam and rod bearings, any help is appreciated.

Be sure you have the cam tunels checked for size to insure you get the right bearings...

Its the size of the cam holes in the block. the main cam journal it self did not change. Machine shop can check it for you so you can order the right ones...

I prefer the CLE-CB663HN rod bearings in LS motors. The CB663P fits but is old school for GENII small blocks.

Isnt there a difference? H and P type? H type is more expensive, not sure but Ill look. The CB663P are also for LS1, they may work in some other engines but its just a bearing, most bearings are universal.

Found the number

L101 so that means it Dec 10, 2001 is the date off the block. I hope this isnt the one with the longer crank or watever that wont work with T-56, I really didnt notice anything different, hopefully the reluctor wheel is the same as LS1 as well, dont wanna have to switch out a crank or wheel. Anyone here have that info? So which Cam bearing is good, the above stated correct?

"h" series bearings are tri-coated...they are race bearings. I always use them. Definatly worth the money.

The "P series" are generally a light duty passenger car bearing, and the "H series" are generally a high performance bearing, but there is a high performance P bearing. With those you can kind of fine tune the eccentricity of the bearing for a proper wear pattern. The front 30 pages or so of the Clevite catalog are VERY educational.

Ive used p series in high performance applications before but I may consider using the H series. I just dont have that much money and im on a budget, but the standard rod and main bearings should be alright?
