Default Main bearing choices

Has anyone on here used Clevite 77 bearings for EJ257? I am in process of building a motor for my 06 Sti and need to get some main bearings. Car is around 400whp and this build wont see much more than that. Motor being built is OEM crank and rods with Mahle power pack pistons.

My choices are
1. OEM bearings and they will run me around $130 with no shipping

2. Clevite 77 bearings which are same part number as Mahle bearings that I have been finding. Different part number than old Mahle Vandervell bearings. Not sure if quality of these are good and I would like to know if any engine builders have used them with good results. ~$50 + shipping

3. ACL bearings, Im kinda trying to stay away from them since I have read quality had went down and they are around $90+ shipping and that would put them around same price as set of OEM bearings.
