So, I am under the assumption that this hybrid retains the 2.0 8v oil pump, or did I miss something. I read the entire thread. Would the oil pump be up to the task of keeping 12 more lifters pumped up AFTER the change in the circumferance of the intermediate pulley. Just asking. Applying this info to RD/HD (10.x:1)1.8 8v with 16v head and dizzy run in block for turbo application. I understand that I will have to monkey with cam pulley offsets, but all else should work, providing the oil pump is up to the task. I may or may not notch pistons for valve clearance.
