Now that I killed the 3gm30

I have to decide what to do next. My choices are:
1. Purchase a new 3ym30.
2. Purchase a "remanufactured" 3gm30 from Mack Boring
3. Rebuild mine (think least attractive as don't know how much damage there was from my hydrolocking crime, know that at least there is a bent piston rod).
4. Upsize with new 3jh4.

Boat is a freedom 38 which is a little big for the 3gm30 that has pushed it for 20 years.

Anyone have experience with remanufactured units? Anything to watch out for?

Awaiting pricing on the alternatives from the yard but didn't know if there were non-financial consideration to weigh.

Thank you for your help and advice.
