Open deck and 2-bolt mains are confirmed by redline's disassembly of the 2.0 theta motor. Personally, from the experience that I have had with various motors (a couple of 2.2 mazdas, 4g63 mitsu, 2.0/2.2 subie, and 1.5/1.6 honda motors) it all comes down to tuning. I have made solid hp numbers with no block integrity issues on open deck motors (245whp on a D15B honda) with stock components. I feel really confident in the design of the 2.0t theta and think that all of us will be pleasantly suprised with its potential.

This will probably happen more as the site is attracting more members, who are probably doing searches and finding old threads as they scan topics.

it's cool, I'm one of the ones that promotes reawakening the dead threads when someone has new insigt or something to add. I would much rather rivive an old thread than starting a new one on the seme topic.

You're right to some degree. In all reality, balancing of the bottom end really is what matters here. Harmonic combustion is something that requires very delicate and precise tuning. With good tuning and a proper engine setup there shouldn't be much concern for the motor being 2 bolt mains versus 4. If anything, this should make people value a good tune/tuner just as much as the quality of parts they put in their car.
