    I'll be putting this under the knife tomorrow. I figured I would take a few pics before I dirty it up making baseline cuts....

    I really like that it has a separate strato butterfly like the 562xp. I predict very good gains from this saw.

    First thing I would throw a orange side cover on it and proceed to build a killer as you always do

    I've been waiting for a 576XPAT thread like this ever since joining the site. Mine hauls in stock form - very interested to see where you can take one.

    Those saws are such good runners stock. I bet it will be a reall runner once ported. :clap:

    I'm with you on the cover. My 346NE has an orange OE cover.......I gave the silver cover to an old 350 I sold. :laugh:

    I'm interested in seeing how it responds too. If it's anything like the 562 it will be a freak. :)

    Glad to have you aboard Nik. I'll be running it for at least a tank before going inside. I ain't looking forward to that part. I bet it sips fuel. :laugh:

    It was hard for me to decide what I liked better when Andre had Mike's 576AT and Brad's 441-cm. I didn't run them too much but man did I like them. They really did feel like a ported saw in stock form. Sure will be fun to see how this one responds to mods!

    Mastermind have you ever ported a 576 with the standard carb? Can't wait to see the outcome on this AT one.

    Yeesh, lots of stuff, like a new car.
    Good luck with that.

    no doubt you have it handled, the man with the plan. It makes me feel old just looking at it.
