    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.

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