The engine I currently run is and oversquare 2.7L (93mm x 66mm). I shift at 7500, and the engine has never seen over 8000. The engine makes about 260 hp (this is an estimate). I would have thought a well-prepared mag case would have handled this, but my experience was different. My scenario is probably a rare one. But I think it's fair to say that aluminum is significantly stronger than magnesium, and I guess I just prefer to err on the side of reliability when it comes to a race motor's crankcase.
