    So, I did a build of a 346.

    I had before video, I had pictures of the build. Now I only have the end result.
    The before proof on the video, can't be had because the video camera died, literally. The pictures are erased after I accidently saved them as shortcuts and then erased the contents on the card.
    I had grand plans, but all I have it the end result.

    I do have cut times though, and what you will view is a 58.5% gain in cut time over stock. Honestly.

    Nice work! You guys are killing me,posting videos of your hot rodded saws! I swore after modding my diesel truck 6 yrs ago to over 600RWHP,I'd leave the rest of my stuff alone,but you guy got me wanting to buy pro saws and mod them up now! I can see this "hobby" getting as expensive as a yrs worth of heating oil real quickly.:greenchainsaw:

    That thing is quick for a little saw I didnt think that you played with the little ones. Looks like an awesome build as usual now I just wish I had enough money to get that wicked 880 that you built.

    Did you put a non-limiting coil on it? What's it turn out of the wood?

    It already hand one. This was a build that was hacked by someone else and redone by me.
    Outta the wood I think it was about 14,300. In the wood it bounced between 12,100 and 11,800 in the cut.

    The non limited coil saw I did for Roger, was 11,800 -11,600 in the cut.

    The coil on mine was blue and was limited around 13,800. The new repalcement Husky coil is black. I will not mod one for someone unless they're willing to pay for an unlimited coil. Tuning is just way to iffy with the limited coil.

    You can get the oem ones or the bailey ones. some have had problems with the baileys ones. I haven't though.

    switching them out makes a diff. Me and a builder played around with one switching the coils back and forth. Times improve with the unlimited coil.
