Your topics inspired me to do this mod, even when the headers where actually designed for the 2.5i SOHC. I have 2.0R DOHC.
I was Mike's first 2 liter customer, so kind of a quinea pig. Everything went perfect. Very little oil filter clearance (I have the 'oil cooler' between engine and oil filter.), and when it's hot outside I sometimes have a oily smell, but never any problem. I lost some torque after install, but I got that back...even more than oem...after installing the Invidia catback. (Never expected that. I was expecting even less torque.)

It's because of this being the newer EJ203 2.0R engine with DOHC and AVCS.
The AVCS adjusts the camshafts to get more peak power when revving up high.
