it's a mag mag mag world

Hi folks,

I'm in the (slow) process of moving back to Arizona. Currently reside in California.

When I eventually get home and have my garage set up I'll be working on the car to get it on the road. I can register the car with historic vehicle plates and avoid a smog test so I have a lot of options open.

option 1: stock rebuild of the 2.7 in the car. Its a magnesium block and will need an align bore if I split the case.

option 2: I have a 2.2 that came out of a 1970 911t. Magnesium case and Zenith carbs. This maybe a step backwards but if I can use it with just a top end, this may be a viable solution.

option 3: find a 3.0 or 3.2 with an aluminum block and build a motor. This is the most expensive; core, rebuild and maybe PMOs

Are oversize bearings unobtanium for mag cases? Bearing availability may be the ultimate driver of my choice.
