yeh, the 2 camshafts have a chain going to each other so the timing gear is a bit different, probably be easier using a VCT AU head.

yeh, but those cars with 1000bhp are turboed. I'm sure with the right internals, and lots of boost, the e-series i6 would be able to crack 1000 hp just as easily.

Long story short, you cant put a DOHC head on a SOHC block.

Short version of the long story, you need to spend significantly more modifying the SOHC block to take the DOHC head than it would cost to put the whole DOHC engine in.
