Roller Bearings Throughout

Maybe this has been tried or even done on a V8, I know it is done on 2 stroke and some 4 stroke ATV engines. Has anyone ever successfully installed roller bearings in a V8? I'm talking main bearings, rod bearings, cam bearings, the works?

Pros & Cons?

I don't know about V-8's but Honda did it in the '70's in their small sports car, 4 cyl I believe, zero oil pressure and very high rpm potential.
