SOHC to DOHC can be done, you can do it on the 1.6 engines with 16v head from a corsa or daewoo. Never heard of sticking one on a 2 litre though, 2.0 8v are pretty rapid anyway, bit old tech but it wouldnt make much difference.

i've heard of people putting honda k18 (1.8) heads on to k16 (1.6) bottom end to improve performance and a dyno run did show an increase in power. whether or not the same is true for a 8v to 16v conversion on a corsa, its not something i have looked into, but as jim said, it would probably be easier going for a 20XE or 20LET.
