Default Bearings

My clutch didn't come with a pilot bearing or throw out bearing, so, I need to buy some before I put it on. Most people have upgraded clutches, so they use the bearings that come with their kit, but, are they the same as stock quality, or better? I need to decide where to buy the bearings. I looked for a performance throw out bearing a lot time ago that said it was rated for 500+ hp, and it was a little over $100. I freaked. So, hoping stock bearings or some other company provides enough strength for like $25 each or so.

hp has nothing to do with clutch bearings, only pressure plate strength. Get oem ****, you'd be pissed if you had to pull the trans again because you saved $10 with a cheap bearing.
