My engine I knew is single AVCS. Definitely a totally different layout. Not sure how a 2.5GT here would look like though. Interesting, but japanparts told me that the CVT and 2.5GT share the same part number for crankshaft pulley, they have confirmed that for as long as the engine is either EJ20 or EJ25, it will fit. So now we knew that aside from the bumpers, the JDM and USDM differs too in some of the layout in the engine as well.
