These things are in the spec book from Porsche. They don't have to be found out by word of mouth. Bearing clearance for 72-73 Porsche 911(including 2.7RS) are as follows:

Mains 1-7 .010mm-.072mm (.0004-.0028 inches)
Rods .030mm-.088mm (.0012-.0036 inches)

As I said my rod bearing clearance was .0015" on a well used engine.
These specs are for new motors from the factory. If you go outside them you are taking a risk. It looks like the word of mouth numbers are within the spec but a little toward the loose end.
