A well built 2.7 upgraded to a 2.8 will give you excellent reliability if some steps are taken to prevent future problems. Case savers will help keep the studs where they should be (in the case). You can also have the case shuffle pinned, cryogenically treated, and put piston squirters if it doesn't have them already. I just had a customer in the same position as you who purcased a low mileage 3.0 SC engine that now too needs a complete overhaul, after spending a sizeable amount of money for the used 3.0. Long story short, I would just rebuild your 2.7 :-)
