Have no confidence in the quality of the rebuild job

are you talking about the older XR series versus the OptiMax. i used to own an old XR2 back in the late 1980's and when my buddy's Opti blew in 2003 he replaced it with the older technology outboard. it was a 2003 outboard but not Opti. i call them the harley-davidson of outboards, make noise and idle a little rough, but run well with little to no problems
I have a 2002 125 saltwater. It has been a great engine. The idle is a bit goofy, but never been a problem. I would not call it rough.
