Tell me about it - my turbo build is using a CIS 2.4T 7R case and required just short of $3K in case work to be a truly reliable platform for my small bore turbo.

Personally, I wouldn't turbo a 2.7 since I feel that the smaller spigots of the 2.4 mag case is paramount for reliability. After all, this is the case the 2.1RSR turbo used.

Any aluminum case is a MUCH better starting point, so if you want to build a mag case turbo, you'd better user really low boost or have a purpose for using one.
