But, does it share a Chevy bolt pattern that  will mate to a Kennedy adapter?

Actually,. the Ecotec 4 cylinder would be a better  choice.
2.0 to 2.4 liters and even a supercharged option. 
Best bet for a  head is to either purchase a ported head direct from Chevy or 
go with the Saab  head (the latest Saab turbo 4 is an Ecotec engine).

There is a LOT of  factory support for these engines and the stock internals 
can handle around  300hp if I remember correctly.

Plus they aren't very heavy, only around  310lbs if I remember correctly.
