Shuffle Pinning

The engine suffered the dreaded IMS bearing failure. Instead of throwing the car away, I am going to have a reputable company in So Cal give it the treatment: 3.6 to 4.0 liters, Carillo rods, knife edge crank, etc., etc.

My question is: is it possible to 'shuffle pin' a 996 case as is done with the earlier air cooled engines to make the halves move less under load? Is this something a shop would do if they were going to build a 996 engine with substantially more H.P.?

I know most shops don't even want to rebuild these engines, let alone 'enhance' them. This is why I say a 'reputable' shop is going to do the work. Can I say 'Vision Motorsports' on this forum? They are the ones who are going to do the work.
