2009 Forester XT 122k Spun Bearing Now What?

Hi all
I bought this with 50k and treated it well. My suspicion is that the first owner didn't treat it so well. Newer tires and rims. Newer turbo. Excellent sound system. The car is in very good condition, but I don't know what to do. A used motor with more miles for $3000 doesn't seem like a wise choice. What options do I have? I live near Madison, WI.
Thanks for any help!!
What would you do and why?

Just rebuilt my 09. Get an iag block. Slap some refreshed heads on. New oil components. Tbelt water pump etc. Youll be back on the road. Do it urself to save labor cost and drop some.motor goodies in as well. Oil pickup, deletes, injectors, etc.

why the new thread to ask the same question as the other one? I asked you a few questions on the other thread to try and help, yet you seem to have abandoned it.

Nevermind, just noticed that this was an even older post, which the second responder bumped up.
