I know how it is putting stuff on the back burner. I jus got a 2.5 head. I thought I was getting the 2.3 but I got a different year so I'm gonna stick with it. So from what I've been reading to make it work on the 2.0 is doing the vct delete kit from massive. Plug the one oil port, drill a new port? Also, looking at the cams, I wonder if I could use the 2.5 cams? I have a 2010 and I noticed the cams have the same 5 prong setup as mine for the cam sensor. Also using the 2.0 valve cover because of the vct delete and the dipstick location on the 2.5 being on the valve cover. Hopefully I could use the cams, I'm gonna test it out when I finish building a spare block.

The 2.5 head will be to big for the 2.0 size engine , the 2.3 head is perfect for the 2.0 the 2.5 works good on the 2.3 engine

Isn't that what sporadic is doing, 2.0 block with 2.5 head? So on a turbo setup, the 2.5 head wouldn't be worth it on a 2.0?

From the measurements he posted, the only real difference is the intake ports. Exhaust ports and everything else measured out the same. So wouldn't it basically make it a ported 2.3? Not trying to argue just curious is all.

Thanks, I was reading about that in the other thread you posted in. Do you still have it unplugged? Makes it nice not to be stuck on cam choices.

I'm not sure about using the 2.5 cams. Without going out to the garage and looking, I believe the cogs from my 2.0 cams wouldn't fit properly. The 2.5 head I bought didn't include the cogs, so I don't have those for a comparison.
The biggest issue/concern I had was the intake ports lining up since the 2.5 is so much larger. I have not been able to check to see if the Cossie-style manifold ports will line up. That is about where I left off.

I'll check it out soon on the intake ports. I might just get a custom intake manifold made to fit the larger ports. Here is a picture of the cogs. I don't have a 2.0 to compare it with. Mine is from a 2011 fusion.
