Nice! Very nice.

Not right now. If I sell the ones in stock now and then order a brand new production run, that might be possible. I can order some extra endplates at that time.
This is now standard on the BOM and in the kits, as is the Hammond choke instead of R2. Note that as Dsavitsk has mentioned, the Zener Tweak also requires R4 and R5 to be ~400R.

Yeah, I saw the question and didn't want to answer it directly having no LCD-2's myself, but since you did ... The current Torpedo with a choke and Zener mod is much improved, otherwise I wouldn't have thought it worth the huge investment to anodize, laser-etch, and start offering full kits. Paired with my pupDAC and HF-2's (sometimes HF-1's), it's all I listen to.
That said, I agree that perhaps the circuit may not be ideal for orthos.
Well, I'm basing that on listening to my K701's. They come about as close to ortho power requirements as any pair of dynamic phones could. I haven't listened with the Zener mod, though - maybe that changed things. I'll try tonight and let you all know.
The CanLanta Meet in May should answer a lot of this, too, but May is still a long time away.
My brother's amp does handle his T50RPs just fine, as well as the Fischer Audio FA2? or 3? Can't remember which ones he has. As well as AKG K501s.
That said, this version may do better, sorry haven't been paying attention to what you and Doug have done with it. It's a nice amp!
