The guy who said that is Greg Brown. Great article: See page 24 of the PDF http://www.porscheownersclub.org/pdf/2002/winter.pdf
That article was written before Porsche roughly doubled the price of their bearing sets.
I know some people don't even replace the #8 bearing at rebuild which might explain why they aren't included in the normal bearing set (unless you get a factory set).
