I've done a little reading around.  Will a lt230S head work on a 230e?  Apparently it offers a more aggressive intake and exhaust valves... and is there a super trap exhaust that I can make work for my 87' LT230EH?  I also read a LT250R axle will work on a 230 but it's 3" wider than stock.  Somewhere I saw that you should have as much weight removed from the piston to help with a crank or connecting rod failure.  I also read that you should have the crank and connecting rod worked over to be as true as possible.  The 260cc big bore kit offered by la sleeve is the best option from what I read.  Someone does make a bad get cc kit but it's a little too much on crank bearings and such.  And can you run a 230s cam in a 230 head?  Anybody have any experiences with any of this?
