I've not heard of a 2.8l conversion, but I have heard of a 2.7l that uses a 2.7l crank and the normal pistons. It would probably have to be a custom job, but it might be possible to use the 3.8l crank and pistons and find out the bore diameters.
I assume you're attempting to build one of these? The engine is based on the m50 so it is possible.
