The 2000 engine is probably an EJ251 SOHC and the 2008 is likely an EJ254 which is a DOHC engine so the answer would be NO.

The '08 2.5i is most probably a SOHC as well, so the answer would be YES. Mind the EGR plumbing and test the heads before reassembly.

Yeah they're both Sohc I was just wondering about Clarence on the valves I know a 2008 will not fit a 2000 because of the dumb top Pistons done it before and had to grind them Pistons down
