Pilot bushing or bearing? Which one for T5 swap?

I am getting all of the parts together for my T5 swap and picked up the brass pilot bushing yesterday. I then happened to see that a pilot bearing is available. Is either one better than the other? I like the idea of a bearing for smoothness, but I also like the idea of the bushing from a 'no moving parts to fail' standpoint.
