I think you are on the right track.

As mentioned the 2.0 heads are probably not your best choice, especially with the larger cylinders. Also there are different versions of the 2.0 heads, I am guessing that you have the T heads. Again, I would look to find a set of 2,2 or later heads as they have bigger valves and are a better match to the larger cylinders.

You are right about the pistons, again not a good choice, for a couple of reasons.

You have an awesome opportunity to go bigger than 90 mm on your bore. Since you need to have the cylinders re-furbished anyway why not have them bored to 92 and get the proper JE pistons to match.

Those 2,0 cases aren't as much of a problem compared to the later 2,7 cases, so I would imagine you would be OK there.

A 2,5 or 2,6 SS will be a great match for your 914.
