Whilst you're correct in saying it won't fit, your reasoning is flawed - it has nothing to do with the number of camshafts - the reason it won't fit is the motors are two different families and the bore dimensions & spacings are different.  The 2.0 is a J series, the 1.6 is G series.

For what it's worth - you can swap the G13 DOHC head onto the G13 SOHC block (the G13 was the only G series motor offered with a DOHC head) - you may need to swap the rotating assembly depending on which version of the motor you're dealing with - as the DOHC is a 16 valve motor, and the SOHC was available with either 8 or 16 valves - you can also swap the heads between the G13, G15 & G16 engines - in fact, the 16v SOHC versions of these three motors all use the same part number.

You can also swap the heads (and the blocks) between the J18 & J20 motors, I believe the head will also fit the J23, but not the J24 - it should be noted here that there are variations amongst the later J series so whilst the heads will bolt up you may find that camshafts and cam sensors are different and so on.

Sorry don't know why the text is so far down on the OP```

Someone was talking about putting a 2.0 liter head on a 1.6 liter engine ~ can this be done or is he talking out of his hat ```

Not possible,  totally different motors.  2.0 is a DOHC  1.6 is a SOHC
