    I'll move this to the Chainsaw section. You'll probably get lots of answers there.

    372XT. Strato, not turbo. Send it out to be ported and it'll give it that turbo sound :msp_sneaky:

    I have nitrous in mine, does that count?

    I may be 20 years or so out of date but a two cycle diesel has a blower not a turbo doesn't it?

    The Fairbanks-Morse 38D-8-1/8 is a tidy 2-cycle opposed piston diesel with a big blower; super-dependable with major torque. I love mine. :msp_sneaky::msp_sneaky:

    Frac There is no such thing as a turbo charged chainsaw. Unless maybe there's a car motor chainsaw that has a turbo on it. Jonsered chainsaws say turbo on them but there isn't one. I think the turbo name on jonsered is the same as air injection like on husqvarnas. But just called turbo.
