    Just picked up a 044/440. Its used but relatively stock except a big bore kit. Trying to decide if i should Maxflow/Holeshot the intake or not. Kind of not a fan of the look or the skinned knuckles i get starting my saw, but like the 135cfm. Would like the old style better. Other decision to be made is exhaust power port or just dual port or even triple port is an option. Any suggestions will help.

    Factory dual port cover is all you need. I like to open up the port in the cover a little more though.

    The stock HD filter will flow more air than than the carb.

    :agree2:

    The MAX flo is a waste of money, IMHO, unless your in some serious dusty conditions, that would require a oiled filter.

    088 and MS880 use same filter, so I would think if it will work for 880 it
    would flow enough air for your BB.

    Like TT said, same filter works on even ported 066s and 088s. So no way your 044BB is coming anywhere near the limits of the filter.

    I did put one on a flow bench at one point, cant remember exactly what the result was but it was well over 100 CFM. 044BB at best would not be able to draw more than about 30 CFM.

    On top of that, they're butt ugly and cheap looking. Of course some say the same thing about my 066 with it's K&N:clap:
