Default Advice on ZDZ 80RV-J - Comp-arf 2.6 Extra Combo

Hi.

I've been looking to find any hard facts with regard to fitting a ZDZ 80RV-J to either a Comp-arf 2.3 or 2.6 Extra without too much success.
One piece of info I found suggested that there would be a fair amount of work involved in fitting this engine to the 2.3 Extra and that it would be to heavy for the airframe.
I'm leaning toward the 2.6 Extra for this engine but would like some real world feedback on the combination before I take the plunge.
Has anyone had experience of this combo?

Thanks.

Stew.

I have installed the regular 80RV inverted with a pitts muffler and also horizontally with a header and JMB silencer into this airframe without problems. The Super 80 has a larger footprint and if simply installing the engine inverted with a pitts muffler it would be an outrageous combo. ZM 26x10 at 6800+ new, awesome performance.
In stock now with 80.00 rebate.
Thanks,
