What are options for a P soapbar pickup in the Bart P 2 size??
Barely any, because you can’t fit a P pickup in a soapbar casing. Your best bet will be a Split-coil pickup with Alnico magnets like the Nordstrand Big Split, but it won’t sound like a P.
From what I can tell the P2s are kind of long and skinny, so the best you might be able to do is to get one of their quad-coil pickups (like the link below) and wire it up with a switch so you can flip it to P / reverse-P / humbucker. Quads are actually pretty versatile that way.

or their MK1 pickups which can be found used very cheap.
