New bearings it is.
Question is whether the available Glyco are acceptable or to spend the serious money on the Porsche parts?
Because crank journals are near round as you can get, so a pattern showing in the bearing tells me it was being hammered by detonation.

I could be wrong, but that pattern is very suspect
