Lots of cars run the same type of setup without the bearings. I don't foresee a problem if a decent oil is used and maintenance done when it should be done.

Much quieter than gear drive or the previous Morse chain setup and swapping out cams is a piece of cake; removing the exhaust is the toughest part of the job. I just converted an earlier gear drive setup to the new MoCo "hybrid" hydraulic setup; nice hardware and a great alternative to gear drives.

There isn't really anything wrong with the stock camplate in 07-up motors. Hydraulic tensioners work really well.
