I tried a "H" cam in my B230FT, (With ET pistons) and it was hopeless under 4k rpm and it idled super lumpy. I ended up putting a "VX" cam in it, now it pulls from 2500 right to the limiter.

I used LH2.2 and Ezk 117 in my 242. I bought a new engine harness and spliced in a 240 Ezk harness, it was about 12 wires in total. You don't need to worry about the speedo if you go 2.2 either.
