I am in the process of rebuilding a 3.2.
I am using
Mains: 996 GT3 "red". these are a little thinner than stock, resulting in clearance at the loose end of spec. I reused the #8 bearing as it was within spec.
Rods: Clevite coated.
IM shaft: Glyco. I bought some cheap Glycos ( $6 each) but then was concerned about the clearances so bought Porsche bearings for several times the price. The Porsche bearings measured exactly like the Glycos, so I stayed with the Glyco.

It;'s hard to say what the " best" are without measuring your crank, rods, IM shaft, and case bores.
