It would be worth checking with Ollies or whoever you would have align bore your case how much extra it costs to have them do it right so you end up with stock standard dimensions. Twenty-five years ago I'm not sure how to do this was broadly known - Bruce Anderson's first handbook on the 911 didn't mention it. But now we all know, and at least in the abstract it is easy enough to understand, and probably to do with the right equipment. You do have to pull all the perimeter studs, and maybe the head studs, but a guy could to that himself easily enough before shipping the case halves off.

My biggest mistake back when was not specifying that the #8 bearing bore be left alone. Look around to see what a first over #8 nose bearing costs. Maybe it is less now than then, as the regular #8 isn't super expensive these days (because there is an aftermarket source?), but they don't wear much.
