I was kinda hoping the 2.0L would be lighter or have better metallurgy but i guess thats where aftermarket support comes in ...
The main reason is price. If you go with a full EJ257 longblock, you also have to purchase all of the AVCS equipment to go with it. Even if you don't run AVCS, you will need the lines and solenoids to feed oil to the cams. This stuff adds up very quickly in price as opposed to just machining out the 2.0l castings.
