    I found this aftermarket kit on Ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/Cylinder-piston...5|66:2|65:12|39:1|240:1308|301:1|293:1|294:50

    What do you guys think? It's a lot cheaper than the stock kit. Will this be similar to the stock Husky kit, or am I asking for trouble? Has anybody used this kit? I see that Husky has separate part numbers for the 353 and 346 and I don't want to buy the wrong part. I love my 346xp NE and I want my old one to rip like the new one, but the stock kit is pricey!

    I think the kit pictured in the link has different ports in the cylinder and a different piston than a NE 346xp. The ports in that kit are even different than the Husky 353, so that may be more like the 351 which would be a slower revving saw with hp similar to the original 45cc 346xp.

    The NE 346XP has closed transfers.
